Merry Christmas from our family to yours! Tucked in the woods of Rochester, New York, a country home that was built in the early 1800’s sits. It is a home where Bravely Belle is spending her first Christmas and it is the same home where her father, and grandfather also spent their first Christmas. Our Aunt has filled the home with Christmas cookies and cinnamon candles. And where the wood-burning potbelly stove is roaring, you can find me in a rocking chair cozying up with Bravely Belle. This house is filled with charm and warmth and Aunt Heidi’s antique Christmas decor. With oak ceilings, floors, and brick walls, I can’t help but to feel that I am in a Hallmark movie. I am so thankful that Josh, Brave, and I had the opportunity to be here. I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to spend Bravely’s first Christmas.
Let us not forget the real reason why we celebrate this wonderful holiday, the beautiful birth of our Savior.
-Josh, Shell, and Bravely Belle
