We know that you’re busy putting the last-minute touches on your holiday celebrations. We are, too. But we’d like to a take a moment between frantic trips to the mall to pick up that one last thing, and all-night cookie-baking marathons, to share our holiday wishes with you.
We’ve spent the last month (or more) talking about the holidays. From shopping trips to events to food to Santa photos to holiday light displays, we’ve had your back. We hope that, along the way, we’ve made your season just a little bit easier – and maybe even just a little bit happier.
At VancouverMom.ca our goal is to help you love where you live. With a city like this one to call home, we feel like our job is easy. There are so many great neighbourhoods, fabulous restaurants and amazing shops and businesses. Plus, Vancouver’s natural beauty is unsurpassed. We’re all so lucky to live here all year long. But over the holidays our appreciation deepens, as we stop to reflect on what really matters.
For us, what really matters is you. The articles we write, the newsletters we send and the guides we publish are our gift to you. And your presence is your gift to us. Thank you so much for sharing that with us over the past year. Before we rush off to research the perfect mashed potato recipe, we had to pause and let you know just how much you mean to us at Christmas, and all year long.
Merry Christmas, and all of our best wishes for a happy and healthy 2012!
