I really like this article - it gets across your passion for the seasons and festivals of the year and makes them all sound amazing. You're right, this is work, but it's work that you get as much out of the process as the results. In fact, even more than that, you get a lot out of thinking and planning beforehand. What a a great way to spend the year - always something to look forward to. Your home sounds like a very special place - always filed with love, crafts, the season's gifts and incredible food!
