joy pockets + holiday wishes

snow melting, not snowed in
our flights booked
a whole morning of no discomfort
discovering a way for her to eat veg that she loves
she added a new food
finished her new crocheted berret
working on my crocheted cap

share with me your joy pockets this week

we leave on sunday for england. to spend about 6 weeks with the family. i plan to blog during that time. we'll see how that pans out!

i hope for you all who celebrate christmas, a day filled with no stress, laughter, compassion, forgiveness, good food, new memories, and love. and for everyone else, i hope these holidays see you safe and finding relaxation and tons of fun.

♦♦♦ see you all in 2011 ♦♦♦


  1. Thrilled for you, both that you're feeling better and headed "home" for some holidays. Also so great to hear the little one is expanding her food horizons. I have been MIA, just running around like a madwoman..busy, busy. But all is good. Lots of love to the three of you, Jenn xo

  2. Wow. she's getting big! And that crocheted berret is beyond cute.
    Have a great exciting trip and a wonderful X-mas. I can't wait to hear all about it - wow, I have missed coming here!

  3. Merriest of holidays to you and your family Mon.

  4. Sounds like a good week! Wow, six whole weeks?? I hope you have a wonderful holiday. I never plan to blog during trips, but that is a long time...

  5. Merry Christmas!

    Love this Joy Pockets, the whole idea makes me smile.

    Love your Christmas Spirit.

  8. Lovely joy pockets this week Mon! So glad you're feeling better and are able to fly out. Have a fab time in the UK!

  9. only just got around to reading this. Hope the journey went smoothly and I hope you are having a great time in the UK (Whereabouts are you staying - we're just outside Exeter if you are in any way near us, it would be grand to see you in person).

    We had a simple, relaxed Christmas, just the way we wanted it to be. Lots of yummy healthy treats so we weren't left feeling grot; a few carefully selected presents which have brought so much joy and new moments of play or pleasure; some beautiful adventures in nature after Christmas Day warm and snug by the fireside.

    And tonight we look forward to celebrating the start of a new year, with food, family, fireworks, fun games and then some fireside snuggling. All little joys right there. Hope you have a great new year and may 2011 bring you an abundance of life, love and laughter, blessings and tranquility. With love Jules x
