Christmas Wishes For You

I had grand plans for blogging this week but I've been completely swept up in the holidays -- buying last minute presents, wrangling rolls of wrapping paper, baking one last batch of cookies (which I've done no less than five times now), and trying to get my dog to wear her ridiculous antler headband. I wanted to share some favorite holiday cookie recipes, tell you what my next few days are going to involve (wine, family, food, games -- not necessarily in that order), and write about some favorite holiday memories. Instead, I'll leave you with a few simple Christmas wishes that I have for each of you....

I wish for you moments of pure joy with your family and friends. Moments where you are no where but the present moment experiencing emotions in their truest form. Laughter, happiness, and innocence.

I wish for you moments of peace. Quiet reflections in a dark room with only a glow of light from a fireplace or the twinkling lights of a tree to soothe your soul. Peace within your heart if there are any conflicts fluttering about. Peace of mind that things are just as they should be. 

I wish for you the power to believe. In yourself. In the kindness of others. In the magic of the holiday season. 

Merry Christmas, friends! 

Have a wonderful holiday season.
