Merriest Christmas

Merry Christmas!

This morning has been full of love, snow, joy, warmth, and feasts. Waking to the smell of coffee and chocolate croissants and finding a heap of gifts under the tree waiting to be opened will put a smile in everyone's hearts. My ten year old sister in particular was a joy to watch as she gave and received the presents that had been on all our lists for the past month.

Christmas is without a doubt my favorite holiday. Lounging in jammies, walking in slippers, and covered in blankets is on the agenda for the day (the only perk about living 3,000 miles away from all extended family...I get to be unashamedly lazy).
