This is the season of celebration. A time of gathering with friends and family. Far and near, we come together to create, to share, to embrace the life we have chosen for ourselves… the memories we are making now will be woven together with threads of laughter. It lifts us up as we share smiles, stories, and life. Laughter leaves our lips, escaping into the cold air as puffs of smoke like wishes on the frosty wind.

This year as we create together, I set my wishes on letting the season be as lighthearted as it can be. To fill this season (and my heart) with joy and the memory of childlike wonderment.

Join me at Paper Coterie this weekend (read this piece in its entirety) and join in your own celebration of joy.
