Grab your Kleenex, beautiful people. It’s J’adore la vie: Holiday Edition!
My favorite thing about the holiday season is the spirit that surrounds it. Most of us embody this precious energy that is reminiscent of childhood innocence. We become giddy to give, excited to receive, and grateful to simply be present in the moment. This is how we should live every day: with the intention that the day will be filled with abundance from all avenues. The magic that the holiday season ignites in all of us can be present every day of our lives. We just have to bring our presence to the party that is life!
After the magic of the holidays fades away, it can be difficult for some of us to seamlessly transition back to our routines. The smells, the Christmas movies, and the fun get-togethers are gone. Once you allow the “post-holiday blues” to set it in, thank them for coming and then send them on their way! Just because the holidays are gone doesn’t mean we can’t re-live the moments that made them extra-special this year. What do you say we get right to it?

My over-arching J’adore la vie moment was when Matty gave me the “J’adore la vie” engraved iPhone. It wasn’t the iPhone that brought me to tears (although it was a fantastic surprise!) but the support and meaning behind the gift. It’s empowering to believe in myself but to have someone I love, respect, and admire support me in this way literally brought me to tears. I just feel so blessed.
