Holidays can be about connection with our loved ones, and with strangers on the street. It's that time of recognizing we are all human and we all long for love and connection.
We feel more deeply a part of the whole of humanity and we dance with renewed hope for our lives. It can be so easy to get caught up in the details and forget what really matters.
This is an opportunity to bring intention to this holiday season.

Here are my secrets to a Simple Focused Meal
Let people help!
One of the best experiences I've had with planning a holiday meal was last Christmas. I knew the folks coming would be stressed out by figuring out what to bring. I thought about what would make a fabulous meal, looked up recipes they could easily follow, and asked them to bring specific dishes with the recipes I gave them.
They loved it. They got to learn something new and bring an amazing dish well loved by all. We got to eat a delicious meal full of delightful veggies and fruit.
Everyone felt like they contributed fully, not just rolls or cranberry sauce and wine.
