So remember when I shared about how I’m sorely tempted to just SKIP RIGHT TO CHRISTMAS instead of savoring the season and preparing for Advent? Well, apparently I wasn’t alone. Many of you told me you’re in the same boat in this dumpster fire of a year. But I think we can do this, y’all. I think we can slow down, prepare our hearts, and have that joyful hope of Advent before rushing into Christmas.
I’ve managed not to bust out the Christmas carols just yet (although, yes, that was me in the milk aisle grabbing some egg nog yesterday. I would say I’m sorry, but I’m not. I stand by my decision to partake in nutmeg-y goodness).
So even though I’m not letting myself skip Advent, I think there are many ways to make these weeks before Christmas cozy without jumping the gun on the next liturgical season. Currently our seasonal decor is an explosion of pumpkins (the farm where my husband works had extras), we’re rocking my winter songs playlist, and I’m keeping our diffuser full of good smells like cinnamon bark, nutmeg, and pine and the kids love it.
Scent is, of course, a great way to make a home feel all cold-weathery and whatever that scandinavian word is that people are always talking about. So I’m thrilled that Mrs. Meyer’s is bringing back some of my favorite seasonal scents: peppermint, orange clove, and Iowa pine! I do not pretend to enjoy cleaning my house, but delicious scents from my favorite brands don’t hurt.
(psst! This isn’t my bathroom, but I would not say no to that claw foot tub.)

“But what if I’m already a Grove customer? Do I get anything special?” Don’t worry, friends, you do. Existing customers can click here to get a free set of Grove walnut scrubber sponges. Can confirm that they’re great because I use them for everything from wiping down my counters to scrubbing my bathtub.
Tangent: in fact, I started out my day yesterday scrubbing out my bathtub in preparation for a house guest and ended up deciding to scrape the aging paint off of the shower tiles. Who paints TILES?! Anyhow, I started out with white painted tiles and ended up six hours later with pink shiny tiles. Gwen jumped in to help while I took the above photo. And yes, I used a cheese knife. And yes, I am aware that’s not the proper tool but it worked so…all’s well that ends well?
This Grove kitchen towel is so pretty that I retired an inferior kitchen towel to the rag drawer because it couldn’t compete. If you aren’t familiar with Grove, they’re my favorite resource for natural household products like laundry detergent, paper towels, and toothpaste delivered to my doorstep on my schedule.
