All is calm …

Written by Kara Fleck, Simple Kids editor and Rockin’ Granola mama.

We’ve been enjoying a peaceful and calm holiday so far.  My friends, I sincerely wish you and your families the same.  Gather close, slow down, and savor the little moments (and let the rest go).

There’s beauty, hope, and joy if we know where to look for it.

Speaking of letting things go, I never got around to getting my Christmas cards ordered this year, even though I spent some time creating a collage for that purpose.  So, I hope you’ll forgive me for going so modern with a tradition, but here are the images which would have been our cards and I hope you’ll enjoy them just the same.

We wish you a Merry Christmas!

Have a wonderful holiday, friends! Enjoy the little things.

“It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!”… Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! “Maybe Christmas,” he thought, “doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas… perhaps… means a little bit more!” ~Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

  1. Your card is gorgeous, Kara! So happy and fun. I’ve been thinking of sending out Happy New Year cards instead of Christmas ones. I haven’t been able to get my cards sent in December for about, oh, 12 years now. Merry Christmas!
