The weekend is here!

My darling readers, happy holidays! I'm off for the next week, which means I will see you next year. :) But first, I want to wish you a relaxing and joyous holiday that's filled with family and friends. That means more to me than ever over the past week watching all that's happened in Newtown, Connecticut. There are no words, except to say that both my mind and heart are with the families directly impacted by this unspeakable tragedy every single day.

So, instead of the usual round-up of links from around the web, I thought I'd share a sweet and thoughtful way to help the children at Sandy Hook Elementary, courtesy of Anne over at I Heart Daily. She calls it a "meaningful act of kindness"—and she's right. Since the students there will be going to school in a temporary, vacant building for the time being, let's work together to turn it into a winter wonderland for them. All you have to do is make and send paper snowflakes by January 12, 2013. For more details—and where to send your creations—click here. And remember, a little can go a long way to fill a room with love.

Be good to yourself this holiday season, and cherish the time you have with loved ones and friends. Sending you all a huge hug—I'll see you next year!
