I am SO excited for the upcoming holidays. It’s different now that we have Benjamin, you know? It’s like there is meaning and purpose to our lives and the holidays are just a little part of that. We never used to get Christmas trees but this time, we’re going to pick one out that’s smallish so we can put it on top of a table so Ben won’t grab it. Despite my holiday enthusiasm, I still like to keep the festive decor to a minimum. That means elements of nature intertwined with candles and essential oils diffusing in the background. Here’s a close up shot of our dining table, topped with a real naturally shed elk antler I purchased on Etsy flanked by different sized candles and cinnamon-scented acorns.
