friday finds...

"the biggest thing as i have gotten older
is the calmness that has come over me..."

I love Friday Finds, with Kim Klassen..."it is a place to gather and share...a place to cherish life's simple pleasures"...doesn't that sound like such a inviting place? 

My "find" this week is to rediscover my calm and simple life.  It is so nice to have found life like this once again.
The hectic holidays are over ... the tree is down, gifts lovingly placed, thank yous written and the antique ornaments are safely put away till next year.  The house is so much less ... less clutter ... less stress.  Just calm and simple.

It is so comforting to settle into January ... candle lights,  falling snow, the warmth of the fireplace, knitting, my cozy blanket, downton abbey ...  Can you tell, I definitely love to hibernate?

Once January is over, I am renewed and ready to go again.  But for now I am savoring my calm and simple life.
