The wise men have arrived! Christmas season is officially over, and with that our tree will come down tonight. These past twelve days have been absolutely lovely. A nice blend of time spent just the four of us and time spent with our extended family and some friends. Like Winter Solstice, I think I much prefer the twelve days of Christmas to (the one) Christmas Day. There's a peace to those days, dear friends, that is much more our speed.
To help bring the twelve days of Christmas to a close we began a new to us tradition today- we
chalked our door. I learned about this sweet Epiphany tradition last year from my very dear friend Erin, and had kept this idea in mind ever since. When Dave arrived home today the four of us gathered and blessed our home. It was sweet and simple and so very lovely- such a perfect way to end the Christmas season and fully enter in to the new year! xo
