Celebrating Christmas in mindful simplicity this year. Handmade cards, dried herbs and teas from the garden packaged in old mustard and jam jars, an altar of favorite ornaments and foraged greens in lieu of a tree, and one pine garland from Sweet Berry Farm to climb the stairs. Wishing you all peace and a very Merry Christmas eve.

Love,

Caroline
