Well, it”s official. I”ve broken down and busted out a bit of Christmas music and packed my Operation Christmas Child box. Yep, the holidays are officially upon us.
I”m hoping that in doing so, extending the season a bit, it will make things seem less rushed. Because try as I may to not wait till the last minute, things always feel rushed for the handmade-minded girl that I am.
If you can at all relate to me, and if you find yourself craving a simpler, more enjoyable holiday season, then I have a treat for you today.
Just reading the title of her book makes me want to inhale and sink deep into a cozy chair in front of a fireplace and a decorated Christmas tree.
A Simpler Season is full of practical ideas and tools for taking things down a notch and ways to help us define our priorities for the season so we can cut out the meaningless fluff.
I”m already planning a little sit-down with David so we can look through her book together and workout what our holiday season will look like this year, and as a mom of littles, I”m thrilled to choose some of her activities (and recipes!) to add to our family”s homeschool and play time.
Here’s what’s included in A Simpler Season:
- creative ideas for celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s
- over 150 pages of content: ideas, recipes, and inspiration for planning a special holiday season with your family
- 70 printable pages: calendars, to do sheets, inventories, and planning pages
- games and activities to do with the kids

- family-friendly recipes for the each of the winter holidays
