If you watched my first ever vlog then you know that beginning December 2nd and running through December 24th I'm hosting an Advent guest blogger series on Ye Olde Knotted Life.
If you didn't watch the vlog then I'll fill you in: I'm having an Advent series featuring a different guest blogger every day. I actually had so many people say 'yes' that I'll have 24 posts, which I will add, as they come, to the Advent tab that I promise I'll put in at the top of the page.
The gist of the series is this: Each blogger will share a little something about how they keep the Season of Advent in their home. Some will talk about special feast days, some books, some prayers, some common traditions, some not-so-common traditions. There will be new moms, moms with older kids, single women, even a nun!
I'm really excited about the series and I'm hoping that this series will accomplish both of my goals: 1) showcase the beautiful variety of ways we can celebrate Advent and 2) inspire all of us as we journey towards Christmas.
