Each year I feel like the span of time between holiday seasons gets shorter and shorter. I mean, I'm definitely a holiday centric girl, and I've got holidays on the brain all year round...that goes without saying. 
I count life experience by how many Christmas trees you've had so far. And I remind myself that life is short by estimating how many more Christmas trees we're gonna have. Yeah, I talk sorta like how Native Americans tell campfire stories in the movies "Many moons ago..."  
But my version is "Many Christmas trees ago..." ha!
For me Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are basically all one entity. It's the time of year to celebrate our family, our friends...our Chihuahuas.
As far as family goes I've got a ton to be thankful for. My sister and brothers' lives are expanding...there are engagements, new houses and apartments, a new baby on the way...
And I talk with my mom more than ever. And me and Aaron spend so so much time with his dad Skip.
Also, every year at Thanksgiving I try to make a mental list of everything that I have gained in the preceding year. This year I'm especially aware of my friendships that have grown deeper and stronger. Friendships that mean the world to me. 
Me and Aaron live a life that is fairly isolated in the physical sense...we work from home (a whole lot!) and we don't go out much. But at the same time we are connected to so so many people, and we have real deal relationships despite being separated by a whole lotta geography.
Human connection makes the world go round. And I'm so thankful for each and every friend I have. 
It's so great that me and Aaron get to make this art that we make. Its so great that so many people are touched by what we do. The feedback we get is tremendous. We could blush for days over the sweetness that comes our way.

Thanks to all of you for sticking by us through the years. Your friendship is the best gift we could ever receive. We hope that you and yours...friends near and far, have an amazing Thanksgiving.
You are such a big part of ours!

xo, Jenny & Aaron
