A white rose
Taken during our trip to California, it is perfect for stepping off into the giving season of December.
Full of promise
Several years ago I gave myself a challenge, doing an entirely handmade holiday. This year, I am reaching back to that sentiment. I am mostly done with Christmas shopping or at least the planning. Most gifts this year will either be homemade, sourced from local/regional artisans, or may be tools to aide others in doing more for themselves.
The month is off like a flash with sports, meetings, holiday events and appointments filling each day this week. I hope to enjoy every bit of this month and head into the new year feeling that I accomplished all that I needed to this year and start again with a clean slate. Pure, crisp, and full of promise.
