I've been enjoying the peace and the slow pace of these past few days. The peace that comes when the busy time of the holidays have calmed. The days have been full of family and friends and long walks by the lake, there has been lots and lots of knitting and coffee drinking and enjoying the twinkling of lights as I sit by the Christmas tree. I have become entranced watching my boys moving gracefully about the living room completely immersed in their imaginative play, unaware of their audience. This is truly a beautiful time of the holidays.
