Greetings, loves. It’s the first day of December, one of my favorite times of the year. I intend to take you into high celebratory mode for both the holidays and The Daily Sampler’s anniversary. For the next few days though, I ask for your patience as I spend some time with my family honoring the life of my grandma. It’s never easy during times like these, but I feel very grateful to be home. Hug someone you care about today and never take it for granted.
