Desiring More Peace within this Season of Peace!

The simplicity of this tree is so beautiful, and calming! 
It brings me back to a much needed soothing memory
of a sweeter, simpler, more tranquil time.
Although my home is not ready for Christmas, yet,
(it's not even move-in ready, which naturally does not bring peace),
I look forward to a slowed and serene moment
in order to share the 
Til then, I pray you find Peace within
 this Christmas season!

Tired but grateful for the gift of renovating a home! xo


  1. Hello Shelly,
    What a perfectly sweet, nostalgic moment you shared with your words and that lovely tree. It is so easy to get caught up in the craziness of the season....and lose touch with the peaceful side of it. 'Silent Night' and all the beauty of the meaning behind the holidays. You always have a way of bringing me back to what is most important. Thank you Shelly.
    I know the process can be daunting but your new home, your new 'nest', will be absolutely fantastic. With your sense of luxe style and beautiful take on classic design I can't wait to hear and see more about your process.
    Wishing you more peace (which is not easy during a remodel) my sweet, inspiring friend.
    xx, Heather
