So… I was thinking…
Maybe… just maybe…
You need an extra Christmas wish this year.
So from my design room to yours:
Merry Christmas to you.
And if you are struggling a bit today: Please know that I am so, so happy there’s a “you”. You have added so much joy to my life. And if you did not visit me every week my life would be poorer.
Thank you for stopping by.
Merry Christmas to you.
