Christmas is such a beautiful time of year, and I am always amazed at how quickly this holiday season flies by! It's so nice to enjoy a few moments to think and to take in the beauty of the cooler weather, twinkling lights, and all-around merriment. The sweet team at Berricle sent over this gorgeous, gem-encrusted tulip ring, and I have to admit it's quickly become a piece that's part of my everyday jewels. The intricate design and sparkling finish make it a perfect piece to gift to yourself or others. (gifting yourself a little something is totally allowed!)
 As I wrapped up some of my Christmas shopping the other day, I got to thinking, amidst the hustle & bustle of shopping, parties and get-togethers, it's easy to forget the true reason we celebrate, and that's the birth of Christ. It was such an unexpected, quiet entrance, and yet it held the weight of all eternity...sometimes I question why He chose such a humble beginning when all the world could have bowed at a moment's notice, but then I remember that He wasn't here to "make an entrance", but rather to walk among us, take on the still, small life of a human in order to prove his unfathomable love for humanity. What a beautiful example of how much He loves us. It's a busy (and sometimes stressful) time of year, and I hope that you find time among the lights and wrapping paper to take a moment to enjoy, take in the loveliness of this season, and realize how much you are loved by your creator!

For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
--Isaiah 9:6-7
