Merry Christmas from the Emmels

Merry Christmas Eve Eve my friends!

This year has been one for the books. And not the books you stack neatly on an ornate shelf, but more like the ones for the pile of fire starters. That being said, onward and upward.

2017 will be a good one for us and I know it will for you too!

This summer I finally grabbed that creativity-inspired thought swirling around in my pool of dreams and turned it into a pretty little corner of the internet: this blog. I’m always inspired by Cara Loren, Amber Fillerup + many more, but I don’t aspire to their liking, I aspire to their impact. I hope you’ve drawn just a little entertainment, humor and inspiration (and maybe even some giveaway swag) from this corner of mine. It never ceases to amaze me what a few kind words, a little humor and some bright lipstick can do for a person. Don’t worry, the lipstick is optional. 😉

If I haven’t already said it, thank you for following along with my c̶r̶a̶z̶y̶  life as I follow a virtual passion.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!

    Love to you and your family – I can’t wait to see what your Mini gets up to in 2017 and how you handle, er manage, um…survive her shenanigans! May the Lord continue to bless you all – Merry Christmas!

      Lots of love right back to you guys! I hope your holidays were more fun than crazy and 2017 will be a good one for all of us. Addison may spend the majority of it in China, because I’m determined to keep my sanity. 😉 Love you friend. Happy New Year!
