While it has been so fun to share gift guides all season long with y'all and talk fashion and shopping, today is about so much more than that. Today we celebrate the birth of our Savior and that far exceeds anything you could have bought in the last two months or any gift you may receive today.
This time of year is SO magical but it's easy to get caught up in the stress of buying and wrapping and cooking and hosting and all the things... I will also admit to y'all that this year has been a hard Christmas season for me, personally. Michael and I have had a pretty hard year and it has taken much more effort to find joy and hope as 2017 comes to a close. However, the best news there has ever been is still true today: Jesus was born and came to save the world. Now that's worth celebrating!
So, as cheesy as it may sound (and believe me, I am not one for cheesy...) let's actually remember the real reason for the season today. Maybe even making conscious efforts to fight against negative thoughts or feelings and getting caught up in all the "hustle and bustle" that the holidays can bring.
And as the old tune goes... We wish you a Merry Christmas. Truly and lovingly, from our family to yours.
