Holly Jolly Christmas

Scarf: c/o Kintage

Yesterday was lovely. We spent time with both of our families and enjoyed the best eggs Benedict and Sour Skittles we've ever had. Despite our promise to each other of "no presents," Daniel is the proud owner of an awesome new (and huge) candle, and I'm cruising around in some new neon orange & gray Nike's.

In our last photo, we had taken a similar one the year before. I love looking back on the years before and seeing how we've changed.

One Christmas tradition we started this year is to keep one of our 5x7 holiday cards that we mail out. I plan on making 5x7's and saving one for our album each year so that we can look back and laugh at all the past memories. One of my favorite holiday books is our family Santa photo album. We have 26-years of Santa photos. It's a treat, I tell you.

And though we didn't have a white Christmas here in Boise, it's sure snowing today. But I'll be safe & cozy since I'll be at work instead of hustling in and out of stores to snag the good deals... though we all know I'd rather be curled up by the fireplace with a big cup of cocoa.

Happy Holidays!
