Merry Christmas

I wish that for all of us in 2008 – to make the ordinary, extraordinary, to make our visions real, to not hold back or to get caught up in living someone else’s dream or decor vision. To take the time we need, to not worry or fret if things take a little longer or change shape. To not try to live off other’s expectations and abilities but only our own. To live hygge.

So then, have a very Hygge Holiday – however you celebrate it.

    Oh, Alex, you’re in Carmel?! I can’t imagine you won’t enjoy it. It’s one of my favorite places. Used to spend a lot of time there…gosh…about 25 years ago. Still love to go there. Merry Christmas! Enjoy your new settings…and the time with your Mom.

    We were just in the Carmel area for six weeks and it was fabulous. I think it is the most beautiful place in the world. I hope your Christmas there is fabulous. My best friend does hair there-email me if you want the best haircut ever.

    Warm wishes for you and your new home.
    This has been a season of realizing that the ordinary is so amazing when you take the time to treasure it, let go of what you think something should be, and actively take part in it. Thank you for the reminder.
    I hope that you have a wonderful time in your hygge house.

    Perfectly lovely. I admire your bravery. Change can be frightening, but I find it is almost always positive. Happy New Year…

    What a wonderful blog you have. Very inspiring and your writing is so lovely.

    Carmel by the Sea is perfect. I can’t imagine you picking a better spot. It will be very cozy and foggy and perfect for helping plump up your creativity.

    And why of course you and Miss Posy would be friends.

    well said, I feel the same way. I have a brother out in Santa Monica and I have to get out there this year, maybe I will check out that market, it sounds great!
