As always during the holiday season, I find myself reflecting back on my family, friends and the good company that we’ve shared. Although this past year has been different than any other I’ve lived through, I know that I am not alone in this. While it’s been, at times, a challenge to gather—often virtually, I’m still blessed with a big family I love and wonderful friends to catch up with, even at a distance. I truly hope each of you have been able to find comfort from family and friends as well.
Every year has its ups and downs, and while it often feels like this year had more than its fair share of trials, family and good friends are what can help carry us through those rough patches. That’s why it’s more important than ever to let these people know how much you care about them. While we always recommend sharing a couple glasses of whiskey together, we understand that’s difficult this year. Whoever it is that you value most, be generous in letting them know.
As this year winds to a close, we hope you’ll take a moment to savor its finish, finding bright spots in the days behind and hope for those yet to come. For me, those bright spots are almost always my family and friends, and I hope you all will be able to raise a glass with yours again soon.
