BEGINNINGS GET ME EXCITED. There’s a certain thrill that attends what awaits, whether it’s the changing of seasons, the first stages of a new project, or a brand-new year. I never tire of that first-time feeling—the delight of untapped possibility. This season at Magnolia, we’re discovering that beginnings and endings should be equally revered. So before we turn this calendar year, we are intent on entering the holidays unrushed and unhurried, seeking rest where and how we need it most. It may seem counterintuitive, maybe even a little naive, to suggest prioritizing rest in what is typically the busiest time of year. But I’ve come to learn that it’s often in the slow and simple moments that we’re able to really feel the thrill of the holidays. And it’s in the quiet…

proof of living

LOOKING BACK AT THE THEMES THAT DEFINED OUR YEAR SPRING | PURPOSE To approach a new beginning with purpose is to dive deep on a search for that which stirs you. And when you find it, to let that be your compass. While committing to a purpose can sometimes feel daunting, there’s grace in trusting that where you are today matters for who you will be tomorrow. SUMMER | RISK Once a purpose is defined, one way we can move forward on our own paths is with risk. This summer the challenge—in our pages and in our world—was to learn to live with risk as a more constant force in our lives. And then to choose courage in the face of the unknown. FALL | RHYTHM When folded into our days, using risk to pursue our…

the embrace of winter

The day we head out to our local Christmas tree farm is its own kind of holiday in our home. Once we’ve chosen the largest and most fragrant pine we can find, it’s back home and up to the attic to gather the ornaments and decorations. When night falls, all anyone wants to do is gaze up at the tree lights till our eyes are too heavy to keep open. In that moment, all is calm, all is bright. We are wonderfully aware that Christmas is here. Winter settles in around us this same way. Even as the natural world is winding down—branches quietly lose their leaves and gardens lay bare—the first morning chill, when it hits us, wakes us up. The first snowfall catches our breath. In that moment, winter wraps around…
