a cozy december
this month has been chilly and we have been seeking warmth in each other. we have had more cuddles. more movies by the fire. more stillness. during my pregnancy, there were days on end i yearned for the chill in the air, the gray skies, the early darkness. maybe because grew up on the east coast, with seasons. i love wearing cozy sweaters and warm socks. i love dressing the kids in their one piece footed pajamas before bed. i love waking up in the morning and starting a fire before making coffee. this has been the perfect time of year to have a newborn baby. the cold world outside gives us the sense that there is nothing to miss out on. everything we need is right here. and being right here is everything.
