Here we go!

December already?!

It's my favorite time of year. Christmas songs may or may not have been gracing my car since before Thanksgiving. But the best part of the season for me, by far, is the giving... and watching my kids learn the importance of gratitude, while experiencing the magic, creating new traditions, and carrying on the old.

Here's what's on my mind today...









The Project 320 girls are working on something big... details coming soon!

Blessed to Bless bags for the homeless. I want to give away as many of these as I can this season.
'They should just get a job' may seem like an easy conclusion to jump to, but I'm not going to be the judge of that!
Tonight we filled 10 quart-sized bags for about $35- less than my family spends on a typical dinner out.
Times are definitely tough for all of us, but I'd rather sacrifice a few dinners out this month, if it means a tiny, simple blessing for someone else really in need.

That video was amazing. I wish I would have seen it before Christmas and shared it on my blog.
