Love… Actually, Merry Christmas 

Globally 2016 seemed hard, with war, terrorism, politics and tragedies. I was putting together my gift guides and watching Christmas movies and I started watching Love Actually (the best Christmas movie BTW) and the opening quote really struck a cord in a way that it’s never done before: 

“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.”

So this holiday season surround yourself with love,

Merry Christmas 

Lots of love,

Emily & Patrick xoxo
