Simple Things

Five simple gifts that I loved receiving this holiday season.

1. Ski daysSkiing at Copper Mountain | the beauty in simplebecause they’re made possible with babysitting gifted from friends.

2. A supply of 100% beeswax tealight candles100% Beeswax Tealights | the beauty in simplebecause someone knows just how much I love candlelight.

3. A lifetime membership to the Community Food Co-op of BozemanCommunity Food Co-opbecause even though I can’t shop there now (except on vacation), there are future plans brewing. (If you ever make it to Bozeman, a stop at this amazing natural food cooperative is required.)

4. Gift certificates from my husbandGift Certificate | the beauty in simplebecause I’ll take a super deluxe spa treatment from him any day over diamonds (or whatever women are supposed to wish for).

5. Reusable cloth bags some gifts came wrapped inReusable Cloth Gift Bags | the beauty in simplebecause they come from an organization that “is committed to developing programs that increase access to education and create new economic opportunities for women and girls in disadvantaged, poverty-stricken and war-torn areas.”
