What a week it has been. Full of deadlines, working ahead, and wrapping projects up as I close the office for the holiday. This morning I’m sitting in my parents home, surrounded by a crackling fireplace, and a tree trimmed in classic red and gold. As I drink a favorite cup of locally roasted coffee and look out the kitchen window, I find my heart grateful. Grateful for the ones who have stayed by my side, the ones who have held me over the past six months, and provided me with the encouragement to keep moving forward. It is only by grace that I’ve made it home.
Whether you find yourself home for the holiday or in a distant land, from our home to yours we wish you the most merry Christmas. This year more than ever I’m reminded of the importance of wonder and mystery like never before. 2,000 years ago on a silent night, in a cave on the outskirts of town, one of the greatest wonders and mysteries came. And much like my favorite carol states, “A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices.”
We hope you enjoy some rest away from the Internet over the weekend and we’ll see you back here on Monday as we prepare for the new year.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Glisten and Grace!
