We usually decorate for the holidays the weekend after Thanksgiving but this year we decided we could use a little more joy earlier. And so. The boxes are out. The music is on. The tree is going up and the hot cider is in the stove. Bring on the holiday cheer.

Meanwhile, you know who is getting her snuggles in with the fireplace.

Strung glass beads with dangling ornaments hanging from the dining room chandelier for the win!

The holiday season keeps getting more magical with each year of parenthood. He just turned six and I’m I want him to remember these days. They are precious and full. Today, I asked him what rules he would like to make should he be president, and he very quickly said, “No sugar for the whole world, and many hours of play for everyone.” Okay, then! Keep playing, True!

Woke up this morning to the house decorated for the holidays. So worth it to get it out early this year. I LOVE putting ornaments on candle sticks (via something my mom does) and this years mantle is full of them.

I often say that I am not my failures and I’m also not my successes. I am simply a woman doing the very best I can while trying to do good in the world, and learning along the way. We all are, no?

I’ve been a part of some intense personal and collective soul work this last week. It has not been easy. In fact, I made some real + messy + hurtful mistakes in the midst of it all. And it has been at least uncomfortable, and at worst devastating to own these pieces of my humanity. And yet I also know that this is where the potent learning comes in – in the devastation and burning and clearing of all that is not in service to our collective and personal healing. From that comes a new growth, new ways of being in the world, new ways of compassionate living. What I am learning is that with any kind of awakening, we must show up and listen. Listening is hard. Especially when done right.

Thank you for your friendship in this space. Thank you for allowing me to show up in all my realness which right now is pretty darn humbled, a little shaky, but solid in my integrity to keep listening and learning.

Big love
Kelly Rae

Sending much love,
