After more than a year in quarantine away from friends and family, the holidays just feel … more special this year, don't they?

While it's always a mixed bag of emotions around the holidays (it's okay, there's also lots of mixed cookie assortments, too), there is absolutely no denying that at its core, this is the season of gratitude, blessings, and believing. 

“It’s the thought that counts” couldn’t be more true this year. It is the thought that counts, the thought behind every little act of love that we do. Whether you’re preparing a meal for your entire family to enjoy, giving touching gifts that speak to the heart, or adorning your house with beautiful decorations to fill your home with a happy spirit — all of these little efforts speak so much louder this year. So loud they might even beat Grandpa’s post-holiday meal snoring. 

The holidays aren't just about showing love to the people in your life, it's also about showing love to yourself — especially if you are one of those who find yourself panicking at all the holiday heavy lifting to be done. From self-love tips for managing the emotional roller coaster that can (also) be the happiest time of the year, to traditions and recipe ideas, we're here to thoughtfully celebrate with you this holiday season.
