Merry Christmas!

Hey 5-Star Trader,

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

No matter what holidays you celebrate, for me, the end of the year is a time to celebrate, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy the little things in life. Of course, this is generally coupled with some introspective thought, plans, and dreams for the coming year (more to come on this!).

For now, I wanted to send you a quick note from my family to yours, wherever you are, and wish you happiness and joy this holiday season. 

This year, our son Leo turned 8, started playing baseball and soccer (the latter of which I found myself coaching!), my sister got married amidst the pandemic, my husband and I spent quite a bit of time working from home together, and we added two new bunny additions to our family:  Einstein and Cottontail. 

Wherever you may be, we are wishing you health and happiness this holiday season!

One thing this pandemic has taught me is that spending time with those you care about while we go through this crazy journey called life together is what matters more than anything else. As such, don’t forget to step away from those screens for a bit! The markets will be there when we get back.

Happy holidays,

Danielle =)
