The holidays seem to arrive sooner and sooner each year, and while normally it makes me feel rushed, this year I've decided to embrace the coming season and all of the joyful, comforting, and beautiful moments that come with it. Maybe instead of pushing off these moments until it is finally "Christmas season", we take the extra time to truly enjoy that feeling of blissful nostalgia and the traditions we have created with family and friends. There is something special in the air during the holidays that makes these moments extra special.
Some of my favorite memories are centered around the holidays, such as heading to the Christmas tree farm to choose the perfect tree and decorating it at my grandparents house, fighting my cousins for the last slice of my grandpa's famous pies (strawberry rhubarb is the best and you can't convince me otherwise), dancing to my mom's collection of Christmas CDs with my siblings while helping my mom cover the entire house with holiday decor, receiving a gift bag filled with my grandma's homemade treats, especially her brown bread and pumpkin butter, and waking up to my grandpa's stollen on Christmas morning. With so many amazing memories tied to this season, why wouldn't I want to extend it as long as possible and welcome it with arms wide open? So here's to embracing the season, even when it feels early.
This year's curated collections bring those nostolgic memories back in displays of color and texture.
