Hello friends! I just wanted to pop in on Christmas day to wish you the happiest of holidays. I hope you’re spending this season with friends and family (both chosen and related), or however makes you feel alive and joyful.

It’s been an incredible, complex year and we’ve all grown a lot. I hope you’ll take some time to be grateful for your own tenacity, creativity, and drive before you dive into resolution planning for 2020.

I’m taking a quick trip to the Hudson Valley for merrymaking with the fam—and my main squeeze—before returning to Brooklyn mid-week. It will be a quick trip, but definitely a magical one!

Here’s hoping we’ll all be warm, cozy, jolly, and full of good vibes during the last days of the year.


Fingers crossed for snow…
