{Holiday Gift Giving}

Saturday, November 21, 2015


One thing my dad has always been great at is giving thoughtful gifts.
Recently he surprised me with a cutting board and incense burner he made from
Brave's first Christmas tree.
I love how gifts don't have to be complicated to make someone feel known and loved.
A good reminder as this holiday shopping season begins!
Happy Saturday, y'all!

Dear Em, I wish you and your family a most blessed holiday season! Your motto of "keeping your gratitude above your expectations" has been ingrained in my heart for some time now and it has truly made a difference in how I approach life. It seems so simple but sometimes the simplest things are the hardest to recognize. I'm very grateful for the wisdom you share on your blog and I pray that one day the Lord will let our paths cross so that I can thank you in person with a big hug and a huge piece of pie ;-) Love, Kristina

These are, without a doubt, the sweetest, most thoughtful gifts I have ever seen. What a gift for you and an heirloom for Brave.
This post warned my heart. Thank you.

What amazing gifts! Everything about you and your family is intentional, I love it!

I saw this trout soap on a rope, the other day as I was browsing etsy and it made me think of you all.
