This December, I want to savour.
I want to slow down my thoughts so I'm not out of the moment before it's started, and slow down my pace when I'm at home so I really feel every ounce of sweet moments with my husband or the success of a great work out instead of just rushing to the next thing. I want to be wrapped in the safety of friendship by catching up over wine and the fireplace channel (the best invention ever) and sharing the early morning ritual of warming cold hands on thin cups of hot coffee while car seat warmers (the second best invention ever) heat up before the rest of the car does. I want packages of beautiful things from small businesses all over north america to arrive every day, so I can give pieces of someone's dream to my friends and family over the holiday. I want to memorize exactly how my puppies wiggle in mid-air when they start jumping as I open the door at the end of a long day.
December can be easy to be swept away in, but for me, taking a moment to savour the little moments that knit everything together can slow down time to a stand still.
They're beautiful when you can find them – and I hope you do – so I'll keep an eye out for you between the big stuff :)
