Merry Christmas To All…

Life in the loft has never felt so cozy as it does right now. It's my first Christmas here, with ceilings high enough to accommodate the tree of my dreams, and a table setting with my favorite pieces... it's feeling pretty magical right about now, and I'm feeling quite blessed...

I hope this holiday is finding you relaxing with loved ones, making new traditions or celebrating old ones.

This year has not been easy for many of my friends - I know quite a few who have lost their parents and I find myself thinking of them today. We all have our struggles and pains, large and small. The world is feeling far from perfect these days. But today, I hope that all of us find a little peace and joy and things to be thankful for.

As for me, this Christmas is feeling bittersweet... because I have a little announcement to make of my own. It will be my last Christmas (well, if all goes well) in my beautiful loft, because come the new year, I'm going to be (deep breath) moving in with my boyfriend. This is an adventure that comes with more than a few nervous feelings and moments of anxiety. I've been here and done this once, and it didn't work out. Sometimes going in blind to these things feels better than having tried it before and failed. But, I also know that this time is much different.

But we'll get into all of that soon enough. And you'll hear a lot about it because I've got a whole HOUSE to decorate! In the meantime, I'm signing off for the holidays to enjoy time with him, his little girl, and my family. Sending love to you all...
