“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

– The Hobbit

Breathing in the brisk air, the smell of pine as we walk through our front door, baking cookies, and twinkling lights – the holiday season is palpable. A unique experience in each home with different traditions and celebrations but with a shared feeling of kindness and goodwill.

After an exceptional year, we all need an extra helping of joy. I have curated books that I hope will bring you close. Books for reading and baking, books to learn new traditions, and classic books to snuggle up with and fill your hearts with gratitude.
