This morning I started decorating our House for Christmas season, hanging lights on the windows and bringing out Candles…I know I am probably late compared to most people. I saw lots of decorated Christmas trees in November already, I just did not feel like it. But now it is December and I am getting in to the spirit.
I just love the smell of spices, especially cinnamon. I actually use cinnamon every day all year! A little sprinkle in my muesli, tea, coffee…It is such an amazing healthy spice.
What better way to ring in the holiday season, then with some gingerbread smell in the air:-)
