holbrook christmas card coming at you!

the holbrooks and 50% of our luggage made it to portland in the early morning morning hours today. the rest of the bags and the last of the family are (hopefully) expected later this evening, so consider this us signing off for the holidays. we are so grateful for all of the friends we have made around the world through this silly blog this year, and we wanted to make sure to thank you, big time, and to let you know what a blessing you are in our lives every day. we are so grateful for the love, support, and kindness we receive from you, and we are grateful for your prayers, too. some days i swear i can feel them. it's humbling and so sweet. i'm hopeful and honored that in any small way i've been able to send that love back out to you. it's a privilege to share a small piece of my life with so many kindred spirits. we hope so much that your christmas is filled with love and family and the peace of knowing that god loves you just as you are, right this very minute. we're doing it, kids. keep up the good work.

xoxo
