    The holidays are a lonely time for me, I’m not a fan of Christmas really… and I don’t have much family around. Your post was on point, I’m glad I’m not the only one. And you’re looking sharp! 😉 I love that dress!

    I’m so sorry that this time of year has such a heavy emotional weight to it for you! You’re so right though that surrounding yourself with positive and uplifting friends and family can make all the difference!

    I agree with you on all of these! Sometimes we just get so wrapped up in all the holiday craziness that we forget the real meaning of Christmas. I’m completely OBSESSED with this dress!
