My Merry Message + Holiday Roundup

Merry Christmas weekend! I fall in love with this time of year over and over again.

I wanted to share our holiday card. In true California style, we faked the snow with gold confetti. I’m growing a baby, Jake’s growing a beard, and Jett’s growing the nerve to admit he’s not ready to share the spotlight (UM, do you see how thrilled he is?!)…

Nonetheless, our first-born looks pretty handsome in a red bow.

I feel different this Christmas. More grown up, more grateful, more empathetic. My heart is simultaneously filled with more joy than I ever knew possible, while it aches for those suffering heartbreak in ways I haven’t felt before. Maybe it’s the pregnancy. Or maybe it’s just me one year older. Whatever the reason, I do not take happiness for granted, and I hope each of you — everywhere — feel the gift of life this season.

My family is home for Christmas. We’ll be sipping on hot cocoa while pretending it’s a winter wonderland amidst the palm trees and pacific ocean… it’s possible.

Merriest of Christmases (and merry everything)! I am grateful for you.

Feel inspired to create, craft, cook + celebrate this season with all of my holiday ideas…
