As a retailer, I should be thrilled that it’s December and touting how amazing Everyday Sabbatical clothing would be as holiday gifts, especially since everyone is still spending a lot of time at home. But I’m not going to pretend, my heart is just not in “the jingle bells” this holiday season. Don’t get me wrong, I would LOVE for women to be gifted Everyday Sabbatical because I’m proud of the design and quality - but it’s been a hard year for most and that cannot be forgotten in the fa-la-la-la-laaa.
I am feeling a combination of gratitude and sadness with a dash of frustration (ok, maybe more than a dash.) And finally, hope. Hope that I can travel to reconnect with family and friends, enjoy random conversations with strangers and hug. I miss hugging.
I send all of you a warm, virtual hope hug – and look forward to real ones in the near future.
