"The sun looks down on nothing half so good as a household laughing together over a meal."
- CS Lewis The Weight Of Glory (1949)
Welcome to the glorious Holiday season. Stores are lined with shimmery reds and greens. Christmas sales are beginning, Black Friday, then Cyber Monday will be happening. You'll wrap some presents, bake some cookies and then just like that... it's a new year. These last two months of the year never cease to fly past us. And truly there's no way to stop the craziness of the season. Although let me encourage you to do just this one thing. While sitting at your thanksgiving, christmas or any holiday table. Surrounded by family, friends, your loved ones. Take a moment, maybe just 5 seconds more a few more and just admire those around you. Listen to their laughs, notice their smiles see the wisdom and life resting in their eyes. Take that pause, soak in the moment and let your heart be gracious.
This past year I had the honor of participating in the Gather to Give Back event. Hosted by Simply Taylor and Columbus Nutrition Co. These lovely ladies hosted the most beautiful and tasty dinner party. The proceeds from this dinner party went to Ohio Food Bank, hence the title of the event! It was all so perfect! Including the Styling done by Events Held Dear.
