We'll always look back on 2020 as a year that affected our lives in ways we never imagined. Between the pandemic and the loss of loved ones, long and sometimes somber lockdowns, a reckoning of our racial inequalities, a growing climate crisis, and a grueling presidential election, we've all faced countless challenges throughout these past 12 months. However, with each obstacle came a new lesson to learn and a greater sense of appreciation to discover.

We've found that you don't need a big crowd—or a crowd at all—to host an unforgettable Thanksgiving or Christmas. And that just the sight of greenery, whether it be a lush home garden or a few houseplants decorating your windowsill, can immediately relieve stress. And, of course, we've all learned that any room can double as a chic home office, and yes, sometimes the bathtub is the perfect space to take a few work calls.

Before we bid this confusing and chaotic year goodbye, we wanted to reflect on the colorful stories that helped not only us but all of our lovely readers through all the ups and downs, shining some light, offering escape, and encouraging us all to celebrate every moment as it comes.
