Colder weather. Hands cupped around warm cups of coffee and tea. Snuggling under our new favorite quilt. Staying in pjs all day while we watch my own favorite movies from when I was a little girl. Little rascals finding the sugar bowl. Way too much laundry folding and putting away. Room rearranging to make it more appropriate for a preschooler and a toddler, not an infant. A very much needed slowing down for all of us.
