My sweet friend sent this to me the other day. What a perfect warm-up treat! Here by Bozeman, MT we have a foot of snow and temperatures got down to -14 the other night! It’s officially the holiday season in my mind, and that has nothing to do with the overstimulation of America’s red and green plastic Christmas. I’m talking

homemade ciders and chai warming your soul and filling your kitchen with fragrant celebration

decorating the home with stalks of wheat and being thankful for these harvest days

slowing down and coming inside to be around each other more often

thinking about fun little things to make for loved ones straight from your home

writing more letters

and enjoying that overall sense of thankfulness and love that comes not from circumstance as much as from the deep places of the heart and soul.

Let’s stir these things up in ourselves and throw in a few cardamom pods while doing so… thanks Amanda! xo!
