coffee and beignets

Before I begin, I must confess that this idea is copied whole cloth from the magnificent Rachel W. Cole, a coach and colleague who works to help women become well-fed in all areas of life. You can find her Top Posts from 2015 here.

I write this with a plush blanket draped over my knees, enveloped by a soft grey sweater dress; my notions this Christmas season are all about comfort—and looking back on the year’s Journal entries, I find that most of the ones I love best are also about comfort in some way. Or are comforting in and of themselves.

Enjoy the list—a brief one, so that you can get back to your day as the calendar wanes. Have a reread of your old favorites. And I’ll see you in 2016.
