Happy Friday!

Honey Kennedy : 1929 California Snowman

Happy Friday! Phew. I’m draggin’ at this point with a giant sleep deficit after the past couple weeks and I know I am not alone in this, right?! I’m very much looking forward to getting my nails did (fingers AND toes–so psyched!) and day drinking some strong eggnog with my pal, Teresa, today. This weekend is about getting the house ready for family and finishing up Christmas shopping at the awesome local holiday markets. Have a wonderful weekend! xx

P.S. Check out these beautiful limited edition hairpins that Teresa is selling! (you can also use the special code from below for 15% off! LETITGO)

The “Let It Go” Holiday Giveaway

My big holiday giveaway finale is pretty epic! I know the incredible people who make or stock all these wonderful things I’ve picked out for this prize, so I feel connected to the stories behind where they came from and how they were made. For the New Year in 2014, one of my intentions/resolutions is to be more connected with friends, family, readers and my community–to be really in the moment with the people around me. Another is to be more open, which, for me, involves letting some dreams go in order for new possibilities to take shape. So, that ‘Let It Go’ banner has been really resonating with me. Happy Holidays, you guys. I’m so thankful to be getting to know you over the years. You’re all amazing! xo

UPDATE: Congratulations to Jess (viewoftoledo)! She won this amazing giveaway!

TO ENTER:
1. Leave a comment below telling me what you’d like to let go of or let into your life in 2014.
2. For an additional entry, “Like” Honey Kennedy on Facebook. Then leave a comment below. If you already like me, just let me know that, too. Thank you! Best of luck, everyone!
