The Stocking Story
Holidays are full of traditions, from hanging heirloom ornaments on the Christmas tree to decorating gingerbread houses with the family. Nostalgia is part of what makes the holidays so much fun, but this year we are encouraging our readers to try something new. When packing away your stockings, ask everyone to tuck in a list of their goals and dreams for the upcoming year. Next year, as you are getting ready to unpack and hang your stockings on the mantel, take time to gather around and reflect on what was accomplished on your list. Laugh at the misses, be inspired by the accomplishments, and be encouraged for the next season. Styled by Taylor Bennett and photography by Kelly Moore Clark.
