This is something I have discovered in the last few years.
I find myself during this busy season longing for something to ground me, to help me focus on what is important to me, to not be swallowed up by the craziness that, unfortunately, is part of the Christmas season.
You know-gift giving, entertaining, spending time with friends and family.
Possibly fall or winter weddings.
(I had a Christmas wedding all planned out in my head at one time.
Too bad I ended up with a July heat wave.)
Do you wonder what to bring to these festivities?
If you are like me, I love to bring a little gift for the couple hosting the event.
When the good folks over at Uncommon Goods asked me to take a look at gift ideas,
I didn't need my arm to be twisted AT all to look at product from a company that connects artists to an online market place AND has a program called Better To Give, where customers can choose a non-profit for Uncommon Goods to donate $1 of every order.
I would love come into a couple's home that is all ready for entertaining and bring one of these sweet Literary Candles:
They bring so much life and energy to the equation - and lately?
Literally, I am SO. EXCITED. to share this with you all.
My eldest daughter and her husband have been working in South Orange County for a group called The Lighthouse Group. It's a non-profit that brings the young adults special needs population together once a week at a faith-based social group.
