This week has felt like a month. The first few days we were running overtime in Christmas bonanza cheer and enjoying the amazing weather. The rest of the week we were holed up in our house (still enjoying the sunshine through our windows) while I tried to shake a sickness I had caught. Today I woke up feeling mostly better, and we were so excited to finally open the Advent calendar and devotional we had ordered.
I keep finding myself so excited that the boys are old enough to enjoy Christmas-y things this year. But most of all I'm looking forward to recentering this season on true peace. I also hope that this is a rhythm that will mold it's way into the rest of our days throughout the year.
(Also, how magical are the colors of this calendar? You can order it here. Obviously, not sponsored. But we love it.)
