It is almost midnight on the eve of Christmas. I have no photos to share this evening, though there are many to come. My intention today was to post some of our wintry adventures, but we all know how the day before Christmas can be. Ours was good...an afternoon and evening with family; a supper of sushi. Tomorrow, we'll cook and bake and enjoy each other's company with festive spirit.
It's quiet in the house and all of Father Christmas' work is done. The gifts this year are simple, few, and perfect. I am most proud of my handmade gift for Coco. All day there has been anticipation and the swirling of magic all about. Now that Coco is three, Christmas is well and strong in her heart. I've delighted at all the skipping and jumping and twirling in excitement. These are the moments I tuck away deep into my heart, determined to not forget the sweetness of it all.
I wanted to share with you something that I absolutely love listening to. If you know the Barra MacNeils you may know The Singing in the Streets from their first Christmas album. It's a beautiful piece of storytelling. So here you go, my friends. May you have a joyous celebration tomorrow with all of those you love, and may we all tread with a quiet and peaceful force into 2013. Thank you for visiting me here in this space, and for all you bring to it. I am most blessed.
