How could i start this Advent blogging adventure without somehow working in a Rose? From my early 20’s every year i designed my own Christmas cards (now UNICEF ones do nicely given those ‘getting older’ time constraints)… but stumbling upon an old stack today, here’s one from 1997….

grace, peace & Advent Roses
