Happy December!
I absolutely love this month and yet (it will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me), I struggle to slow down long enough to really savor it. One strategy that has been helpful for me is being very intentional about my gift buying. I strive to give meaningful gifts that have a positive impact on the source of the purchase as much as the person who is receiving it. For example:

-Shop Small Businesses like these guys.
-Gifting meals to independently owned restaurants (one of my favs!)
Locally made products that keep our foot print small.

Most importantly, I am wishing you moments of lingering peace this holiday season. – Sarah
