Happy Holidays + Chistmas Reading.


Merry Christmas! I hope you’re all enjoying the holidays so far and able to spend some time with the special people in your lives. Thank you so much for a wonderful year. I’ve loved reading all the thoughtful comments and it’s been such a pleasure to connect with some of you! I’m so grateful for this amazing and supportive community of like-minded women. I can’t wait to see what 2015 brings!

Have a wonderful New Years and a beautiful start to 2015 everyone. I’ll be back to regular posting on January 5th (with a couple little things before that). Make sure to put the phones away and shut down your computers to soak up all that family time. “Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.” -Simone Weil. Until then, here are a few fun holiday links from around the web to enjoy with your coffee and eggnog…
