“Joy is not in things; it is in us.”
—Richard Wagner (1813-1883)
Christmas is about so much more than the minutes of unwrapping gifts under the tree, but it’s still nice to give things to those we love to show how well we know them and to give ourselves the gift of giving! Whether it is a gift bought from a store or a gift made from the heart it feels good to give!
I have been very overwhelmed with the focus on consumerism during the holiday season, but I’ve started early, shopped online, and in small businesses that my friends own that I love to support. Here are some gifts that I have loved giving and that I hope you will love giving you YOUR loved ones this year. Happy Holidays to you. Love, Clare
