Three years ago today, I was 8 months pregnant! I worked at a job that allowed me to see some of the most unkind (to put it mildly) human behavior. I hated it. Luis’ birthday is tomorrow, so I am sure I was preparing to celebrate it in some way. At that time, I took a few months break from the internet, and it was some of my most productive crafting time. Lots of nesting for babe.
In addition to being Veteran’s Day, today is Martinmas. Once the sun sets, we will take a lantern walk with our tin lanterns while singing the first verse of “This Little Light of Mine” after reading the story of St. Martin. Donations of warm clothing will be made tomorrow. We’ll drink apple cider and celebrate hub’s birthday as the kids have a makeup school day tomorrow. Yes, maybe a bit hokey, but I really love fall/winter season celebrations and have been creating new traditions for our family since Luis and I got married 14 years ago!
