Beginning with Thanksgiving and ending after the New Year, we are inundated with the commercials, customs, obligations, sights, smells, and sounds of the season. At Might & Main, some of us grow weary of all the fuss surrounding this time of year. But regardless of your traditions, the last month of the year does provide a natural end point—a moment to pause, reflect, and take stock of where you are, what you've done, and what you have. All of us are fortunate in one way or another, and at Might & Main we have many things to be grateful for, indeed.
