The trees that were once vibrant with ruby reds and golden yellows are now naked, standing tall like sentries guarding the forest.
The daylight is much shorter and the moonlight beaming down seems brighter in the crisp cold air. The frost covers the field outside the window and reflects the sunlight like little diamonds as it rises in the east.
I call it a phase of transition. Not quite winter blanketed by snow and the beauty of the foliage long past, it is a time when home provides warmth and comfort like a cocoon.
May you enjoy your cocoon as you plan for the holiday season ahead.
