#TeamBeautiful would like to take this opportunity to wish our incredible readers a safe, peaceful and wonderful holiday. We wish for all of you a day filled with love, laughter, delicious food and nothing short of pure joy.

Let’s face it, 2015 hasn’t been the easiest year. We’ve seen many a sad story, been forced to take to the streets of our hometowns in protest and have had to pick up ourselves up each day and keep fighting for justice.

But in that darkness, there has been a light — and that is the resilience, spirit and power of our people. And no one is more powerful and resilient than Black women.

From Michelle Obama to the women who founded the Black Lives Matter movement. From Serena Williams to Misty Copeland. From Taraji P. Henson to Viola Davis. From Bree Newsome to the women of Charleston. To all of you – the moms, the teachers, daughters, sisters, wives, business owners, bankers, chefs, nurses, CEOs and everyone in between – we salute you. We are thankful for you.

It is because of you that we come to work every day – to bring you joy, to bring you laughter and to keep you informed. We are proud to be part of your digital squad, and we take our work seriously.

Thank you for being the best part of HelloBeautiful. Happy Thanksgiving!

With love,
