From my family to yours...

I’m writing this post just before midnight Christmas Eve, in between sipping spiked cocoa and wrapping what seems like my 100th gift.  Addison is snoring soundly on her pillow under the tree, my husband is trying not to fall asleep to Christmas Vacation, and my in-laws are tucked warmly in bed.  This season is my favorite.  And my family’s traditions that surround this season are what I hold especially dear.  

I’m thankful for these traditions.  But I’m more thankful for a family that is willing to change them all up, and make new ones all in the spirit of helping me live my dream.  

Tomorrow (or rather today now), Christmas Eve, will be the first that I have a physical brick and mortar shoppe.  So unlike years of past, this Eve looks a bit different.  Instead of  finishing up holiday baking or decorating, I’ll be helping last minute shoppers find the perfect gift. Holiday martinis will be pushed back to evening rather than afternoon. Church will happen via satellite in our living room (thank God for technology). Christmas Day breakfast has been simplified to pastries and mimosas.  And Christmas dinner is now a lunch because of the shoppe’s day after Christmas craziness.  

While it all looks a bit different, what matters is the same; family and the reason for the season, Jesus.  So my Christmas wish for y’all this year is that whatever you’re doing these next few days, I hope you’re surrounded by love, family, and the true meaning of Christmas.  Happy Christmas Friends!! xo, MKR
