A Better (Read: Easier) Kind of Christmas Magic

An Better (Read: Easier) Kind of Christmas Magic // @ The Little Things We Do

Today I am going to be talking about Christmas. And yes, I realize that it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet, but I’m hoping that maybe this post can be encouraging to some of you before the hustle and bustle of the season sets in and you still have time…instead of when you’re in the throes of holiday chaos.
