January is quickly becoming one of my favorite months....which surprises me. I love fall - Labor day through Thanksgiving weekend. Then its right into December, which is of course such a special month.
But that whole season is very busy...so much going on - programs underway, soccer season, birthdays, fall activities and trips, Thanksgiving, Christmas.
While I've always despised taking Christmas down in January - packing away all the cheer and memories - both new and old - I'm finding a new appreciation for January.
The cold, gray days are just begging to be warmed up with a fire blazing in the fireplace, family piled onto the couch under cozy blankets reading stories or watching football playoffs.
a reading nook here
a tent hideaway there
a race track....a lego city....a faraway neverland with pirates
to take life in just the same manner....S.L.O.W.
Stretch the days a little long by spending quality time with the family and beloved past times...reading a book, playing games together, baking with the boy
