Dolls, model cars, and stories. Faires and soup.

Mittens, fleece pants, and split boards. Onion honey cough syrup (just in case) and shepherd's pie.

There is secret makingĀ with closed doors and whispered plans, but these other makings are the ones we share.

Making a drive to the mountains, a drive to town.

Blanket forts. Almond milk. Saturday afternoon cappuccino. 'Round the counter, kitchen table, and fire.

Making comfort, making merry. Making friends and making home.

Making Christmas.

      It is (smile). It's been one of my most relaxed and cozy decembers ever. I love living where we do and being together with my family.
