I was diagnosed
with breast cancer
at the beginning of a
It was all too much
to get out my decorations,
bring in the Christmas Atmosphere
in my home.
I didn’t want to stop Christmas
for my family!
ITS A FAVORED TIME OF YEAR!
This is one of my secrets for bringing home atmosphere simply.
The use of SCENT:
(Not for eating but for atmosphere!)
One little pot
(I bought an inexpensive red one at Home Goods)
orange peels as you eat through the season
1. Pour water in the pot
2. Put dashes here and sprinkles there of all the spices
3. Every time you eat an orange throw the peels in the pot
4. Simmer from Dec. 1 until you take down Christmas in January
(Be sure you keep adding water and spices as they cook away all season long. About every other week I dump the pot and begin a fresh new one. It looks awful but smells divine! Give one of the kids the job of making Christmas soup…its fun!)
You may not be able to do
all the things you want to do this holiday.
That is okay!
But you can
make your home
by doing simple things…
Then Christmas will be really spent doing all the right things!
Did you know sense of smell
triggers memories forever.
Bring Christmas soup home
and your family
will always remember it!
