Happy Holidays! With Love, Hilltop Paperie + CoCapsules
Something we hope to inspire through CoCapsules is living life a little slower and taking time to enjoy each little thing and moment that make it so special. What better time to remind you (and ourselves) of that than during the holidays?
Christmastime is a season full of wonder and magical memories... but, so often we're overwhelmed with consumerism, stress, guilt even. In an effort to relieve ourselves of these feelings, we've decided to focus on what we really love about the holidays, and we're encouraging you to do the same.
One of the things we love about Christmastime is receiving special holiday mail from our loved ones, so we decided to partner with Hilltop Paperie to co-create a holiday card collection. With a shared passion for handwritten notes and simply sweet greeting cards, it's the perfect collaboration to share with you, our CoCapsules community!
We asked Rachel, the founder and creative behind Hilltop Paperie what her favorite things about the Holidays are and this is what she said:
"I love family traditions! My favorite is going to a u-cut Christmas tree farm to hunt down the perfect tree. And I love slowing down to see the wonder in all the little things throughout the season, like the decorations that put you in the Holiday spirit."
Jenn said, "One of my favorite things about Christmastime is that I get to spend extended time with a lot of my family that I don't regularly see. We play games, eat festive foods (that I wouldn't typically make at home), and catch up! This time of year, the feelings of hope and renewal are in the air and I really love that; it's the end of a year, but it's also a chance to start fresh with a renewed sense of spirit and confidence in who you are, where you come from, and what you are trying to do."
And my favorite thing about the holidays are lighting up the Christmas tree, sitting by the fireplace with hot cocoa in hand, and watching Christmas movies (Elf and The Grinch are on repeat all December long). I also love curating the perfect assortment of gifts for my family and friends; it's such a wonderful opportunity to let them know how special they all are in my life.
We wish you the happiest of Holidays and hope you take some time this season to enjoy all the little moments that make Christmas time so special to you and your family.
