A Blessing for Your Week

As you turn your heart toward the holiday season, I hope you find meaningful ways to connect with your people.

I hope you find magic in the small moments: like sharing a laugh with your dad, baking cookies with your brother, and playing board games with your nieces and nephews.

And above all, I hope you remember that holidays don’t have to be big, or expensive, or garner a thousand Likes to matter. Because we find meaning when we relish the love and relationship we share in the moment.
