As it has become, the tradition is to get together with our friends on Christmas Eve, and celebrate with a special meal, as I did growing up in Chile. Together, in family, with our dear friends.
This year, even more special than ever, with the cutest little one in our arms. And she can’t make this aunt happier with her beautiful smile. A special gift indeed.
And a morning, full.
Full of surprises.
Full of playing.
Full of traditions.
Full of handmades.
Full of smiles and fun moments.
And this photo to remember later, that we did pretty good on the cleaning part. Just a handful of bags for the garbage. A grocery bag full of recycling. And a whole bunch of fabric bags and boxes we will reuse and use them again, many more times in the future. Ahhhhh… it feels good to waste less. It feels really good.
We had a beautiful, slow Christmas. Together as a family. I love seeing the faces of these three lovely people I live with, open their presents. Those presents we’ve been hiding for a while. Those we’ve been making for a while. Those we thought and figured out how to make for that special someone. How beautiful it is to share with those we love. This time, it was again, just wonderful.
Hoping your holidays were beautiful too.
