values.

{image via real simple}

remember i told you to sign up for this class?

if you didn’t i’ll share a little of what i learned to help me focus on what the holidays really mean.

i love this time of year. i love finding the perfect present for someone. i love the lights and decorations, the music, the food, everything that has to do with the holidays. but that doesn’t mean that i don’t get caught up in the materialism, too. this class, among other things that i’ve done lately, helped me to look at what i love about it, so that i could focus more on those things amidst the chaos of doing and buying.

what i value…

Faith

Family

Tradition

Togetherness and Friendship

Wonder

Rest

Food

Giving

Memories

Glow

the next step? incorporating activities that reflect these values. this means making something or doing something. it can little or big. for example, i plan on reading the Christmas story to j. this takes little time but means so much, no?

what do you value this holiday season???
