One day at a time – this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone. And do not be troubled about the future, for it has yet to come. Live in the present, tomorrow is never promised, so make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. Happiness is a journey, just as life is. Enjoy the ride. by queen

I love this Advent Calendar - a big beautiful pin board with tags for December 1 - 24th. And instead of chocolate or toys each day, there's an ornament to add to the tree. Wouldn't this be a fun tradition for a family- decorating the tree each day with a new ornament? So fun - and a pretty piece of decor, too! (this one's Pottery Barn but totally DIY-able) by Phalaina
