I’m happy to have Kristin here for Bake Craft Sew with adorable peppermint print!
We are well into the holiday season, and the excitement for Christmas is really starting to build in our house. From the time the tree goes up, ahem, November 1 an all through winter break, it’s crazy town around here. Sometimes it’s hard in the bustle of the busy season to stop and smell the peppermint and just take joy in the season.
What’s funny about this, if that I had a totally different idea of what I was going to share with you today! I had an idea in my head as I started writing this post, and the words, “stop and smell the peppermint” kind of flew from my fingers as I was typing. In case you haven’t heard it before “Stop and smell the roses” is a common phrase used to encourage taking pause and breathing in all of the beauty that’s around you.
If there’s any season that is more difficult to take pause in, it’s Christmas. So, while this isn’t what I intended for this post, I’m kind of in love with it and this will become my new mantra for the season. I hope you all take a moment today with your kids, with your spouse, or with a good friend, to “stop and smell the peppermint” while all the hustle and bustle of this crazy holiday season goes on around you.
