Although today is Black Friday, and I do love a great bargain, I also recognize how easy it is to overlook the more important things we should be planning for in the days leading up to Christmas. Especially when both adults and children are bombarded with things we're supposed to want, and we all end up with the gimme-gimmes.
So this weekend we're going to shelter ourselves a little bit more from the chaos out there and reflect a little more on our faith and family--which I'm sure will mean a little more chaos around here!
How about you? What are some of your favorite ways to simplify and add meaning to the holidays in your home?
While you're at it, hop on over to Small Notebook, and check their post on making your home a haven during the Christmas season--it was a bit of an eye-opener for me!
