Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Like many bloggers do this time of year, I’ll be disappearing (mostly) offline until 2019 arrives with bright, shiny expectations. Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I am now thoroughly entrenched in festivities. From listening to Christmas carols (Noel, O Holy Night, and Oh, Come All Ye Faithful rank as all-time favorites) to watching Christmas movies, wrapping presents, and even baking cookies, I’m enamored of the season.

I’m looking forward to spending time with extended family and celebrating long-standing traditions. However you celebrate your holidays, I wish you and your loved ones a magical Christmas, Happy New Year, and peace that transcends all.
