December 2022 News!
Happy Advent season to you all—
This time of year is magical and nostalgic. There’s wonder and goodwill around every corner and endless ways to celebrate and be grateful for all we have. Each other. Our traditions. Our health.
However, those feelings are not shared mutually by every person or family. The holidays can be difficult to navigate, painful reminders of things that didn’t go as planned, or just plain sad to celebrate amidst the glitter and glory. To that, we simply say … may your holiday season be gentle.
May you all enjoy the holidays!
Cheers—Reyne & Scott Roeder
