Merry Christmas from this side of the Pacific Ocean! Christmas is often stressful when shopping for gifts, decorating the house, and trying to keep up with all of the holiday festivities, but I hope you all can slow down and enjoy being with friends and family. I’m truly thankful for everyone who has stuck around to see what I’ve been up to this year, whether it be lengthy heart-to-hearts about football or the wisdom that a great song carries. I love this blog and the community that follows it. Thank you for allowing me to share what’s near and dear to my heart. Mele Kalikimaka!
