A Holiday Thought…..

Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn’t come from a store.

Dr. Seuss 


This year, slow down and take pleasure in the simple beauty of the season – baking holiday treats and meals, listening to Christmas carols in front of a roaring fire, decorating your home with special ornaments and lots of winter greens and berries, “green” wrapping your gifts, reaching out to those in need, and of course spending precious time with family and friends.  Celebrate with old traditions, embrace new ones and be grateful for your blessings.

I’m definitely taking pleasure in my kids’ visits who come from far and wide, and as much as I love blogging, I don’t want to miss a minute with them.  So, I’ll resume sending you exciting new green tips after the New Year.  For green holiday ideas, check out last year’s Green Your Holidays. 

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to a green and healthy 2014.
