I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends! I am grateful for all of you, dear readers, and for everyone who supports Mockingbird as I launch this endeavor out into the world.
Although holiday decorations have been popping up for the last few weeks, for me Thanksgiving feels like the true (and, I think, proper) start to the Christmas season. I can’t wait to pull out my sparkly white Christmas lights.
Meanwhile, we are T-minus one week from our first European Christmas Market tour! I’m thrilled to be leading this trip as Tour Director; in fact, I’m so excited I can practically taste the mulled wine already. The blog will be on hiatus for the next two weeks, but if you follow @MockingbirdTravel on Instagram you can get daily updates from the road (#MockingbirdChristmas)! When I return, I’ll have plenty to share about the trip, along with our annual philanthropic gift guide…and a few other gift ideas for you, too.
Until then, may your holiday festivities be joyful and sparkly!
