A Holiday Wish for You


Season’s Greetings!

From stringing lights to wrapping gifts, this is a joyous (and busy!) time of year. 

On behalf of our Savvy Team, I want to take a moment to thank you for being part of this special community and for welcoming us into your inbox, Instagram and Facebook, and life. 

You make what we do every single day so much fun and rewarding. 

While this time of year overflows with merriment, physical and emotional overwhelm tend to make an appearance too. 

Joy and melancholy can be intertwined as easily as twinkly lights wrapped ‘round a tree, and it’s tempting to want to make every single thing perfect, or take on too much, to the point that we miss out on the magic and cheer this time of year is truly about. 

When to-do lists run long, and emotional highs and lows are had, it’s important to remember to take some “Me Time” this holiday to be with yourself and process whatever you’re experiencing.

Even a 10-minute walk in nature, free write in your journal or solo cup of tea can do wonders to help you stay grounded and recharge.

This will help you show up as your best self for others too. 

This is a magical time of year. Enjoy every moment!

Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy, and love-filled holiday,

Emily and the Savvy Team 

P.S. Don’t forget to sing out loud, throw snowballs, kiss under the mistletoe, and let yourself get swept up in the excitement and joy surrounding this special time of year. 🙂

What’s one thing you could do that would make this year stand out from the rest and make you feel like you took a big leap in your life?

These days, many of us are so pressed for time that we give ourselves few moments to do what actually excites us. But even if your day feels impossibly stuffed, you can make time for what really matters.

Sounds nice, but how, you may be wondering? I’m so happy you asked!

You Are Enough, Right Now

You Are Enough, Right Now

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).  

But here’s something you need to know … You are wonderful, just as you are. You are enough, right now.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.
