Under Construction

This blog remains under construction. Thanks for your patience! As I consider changes in focus and purpose, I’ve also being playing with some new looks.

bits and pieces

The big days of Christmas have come and gone. It was quiet for us and offered much opportunity for considering what we desire future Christmases to look like. One thing I realized was that I love the exchange of gifts! I like how we moved them to the Solstice, and I’m glad we didn’t cut … Continue reading
