Soon the stockings will be hung by the chimney with care and like holiday cheer, hot toddies, mistletoe + holly, I’m a firm believer in the more the merrier. With little more than a week until this rollercoaster ride of a year draws to a close, only fitting we sneak in one last serving of our Creative Crush series for 2020. Back in February when I created Around the Pound, like visions of sugar plum fairies, I imagined a visual extension of the Around the Pound you already know here. From fashion to food, frivolity to faucets, like a great meal, if it catches my eye, it’s totally worth sharing. Just because the year is ending (can we get an Amen?), certainly doesn’t mean the inspiration will too. Join us in 2021 for fresh new content – occasionally golden, always deliciously creative. Until the ball drops, wishing you and yours a very merry holiday.

Between political discord, catastrophic environmental conditions + a global pandemic all with an unrelenting grip on America, one might say our country is in a state of disarray. We have the power to change the spiral – we can knock the current course off its axis and create a new trajectory for generations to come. I carry no political agenda here, but rather, deep respect for the fundamental principles of freedom upon which our country was founded. My ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War in pursuit of liberty and a belief that our country have the opportunity to write its own chapter. I vote to carry on their legacy in a display of patriotism. No matter the color of your skin, gender affiliation, religious beliefs or socioeconomic status, each vote carries equal weight; it’s the most universally equal opportunity we have as Americans. I sincerely hope you will get out there and do the same, whether in person or by mail, make your vote count.
