Hello! I’m Melanie and I love the holiday season! So it is quite fitting that I got to make the December mood board. I had way too much fun searching for inspiration of all the things that make me happy during this time of year.
For me, December is a month of reflection. I become nostalgic for the past. I yearn for my childhood and for family who have passed on. I recall how magical the decorations, songs, and shows of the holiday season were when I was young. It is that sense of belonging and wonder that I wanted to shine through in the mood board.
December is also a time for Peace. The peace of cocooning with loved ones by the fireplace, next to the tree while snow falls outside (where I live anyway!). It is also a time to strive for and be thankful for Peace. With all the celebrations and festivities, I am always mindful that the biggest gift of all is compassion for ourselves and for others. It is a time to have hope that others who are struggling will find peace in the coming year.
Finally, there is something about this month that always makes me more reverent for nature. The silence on a cold night with the stars brightly shining always makes an impression on me. Plus, there’s that whole cuteness factor of woodland creatures… please, no one tell me that squirrels and cardinals don’t actually wear scarves and hunting caps.
So, this December, get your party on! Go out there, create some magic, and make a little peace!
