Cattails, Rabbit Trails, and Thistlefish: Hello Christmas.

Hello Christmas.

Thanksgiving week is always one of my favorite weeks of the entire year. More than Christmas week, even.
Maybe because Thanksgiving is so family-oriented.
Maybe because everything gets decorated and sparkle-fied.
Maybe because we aren't distracted by the hassle of gifts we feel so obligated to give.
Maybe because there's a feel of simplicity, and warmth, and cinnamon.
Or maybe it's all of it.
Either way, it brings me so much joy.

 Mama, decorating her room.

 Decorating the kitchen.
 One of my favorite Christmas treats... Molasses Cookies!! 
My mama makes 'em best ;)

There are so many things I wish were different about life right now. 
But, regardless of my petty troubles, 
and regardless of how cliche it is to say,
and regardless of how many days I forget it,
I have so much to be thankful for.

I hope this week has been as full of sparkles, warmth, and cookies as mine has.
Hug really hard, and belly-laugh a lot.
Soak it up.
