Saturday we dug out the Christmas decorations and decorated our little fern that sits outside the door as well as the Christmas Tree. Normally we have the tree up the weekend after Thanksgiving but Tori’s finals did not end until this week and she had no breathing room until they were over. As the kids get older and take on more responsibilities it will be hard to set dates to decorate. I have decided that we will start a new tradition next year of putting up the tree after Thanksgiving dinner while everyone is gathered together. I pulled out the fondue set and we had way too many marshmallows, pretzels and strawberries dipped in chocolate. That tradition is definitely a keeper. The beautiful centerpiece above was a surprise I got in the mail from my mom. She knows how much I love setting the table for the holidays. The room seems so warm and inviting with the candle lit and the fresh flowers make the room smell wonderful!
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
