It'S bEgiNnInG tO loOk aLot LikE cHriStMas...
One can't help but to be enticed by the spirit of the season! The beauty of a small CoUntRy ToWn is the feeling it evokes this special time of year.
Our little country church has the most beautiful, simple nativity I've night it's best when lit up.
cOw CreeK is a sight to see in its beautiful wintry colors & iced over along the banks. I think nature is truely Gods handy work!
The crisp cool air, the christmas lights lit on a dark country road, and the holiday decor one would expect to find in the country...makes you appreciate the simple things that are oh so beautiful.
I think a local field trip with camera in tow is in order...I would love to share these beautiful images with you.
And we mustn't forget the scents of the season! I have stocked up on pantry basics such as flour & sugar, as well as, chocolate, nuts, oats, pumpkin, peppermint, and all those holiday favorites! I love spending time in my kitchen, and my boy loves the way our home smells when I'm baking.
The best part for me is wrapping those goodies up and surprising a neighbor I don't know with this simple gesture. For me...little things are at times big things. One doesn't always know what a simple act of kindness can do for someone.
I hope that you too have the spirit of Christmas...and are reminded why we really celebrate...the birth of a beautiful baby boy...Jesus!
