I am also lucky enough to celebrate my anniversary (7 years!) and endless family birthdays in December. Danny's birthday was Saturday and it was a rather momentous one. I love telling him how lucky he is to be married to a girl in her 20's. ;) There is certainly no shortage of blessings and happy celebrations in my life, and I especially appreciate the opportunity to be surrounded by family, friends, and holiday whimsy this year when so many things seem to be going wrong in the world. I hope everyone is able to live in the moment a little bit this season and enjoy the simple pleasures of Christmas. We can worry about everything else in January, right?
Here are a few of my favorite things about the holidays:
#1 - Favorite Christmas Song: Oh Holy Night
#2 - Favorite Christmas Music Albums: Mariah Carey, Transsiberian Orchestra, Christmas with the Chipmunks, and the Time-Life Treasury of Christmas
#3 - Holiday MUST: Real Christmas Tree
#4 - Longest-Running Family Tradition: Mom's butterscotch rolls on Christmas morning
#6 - A gift I'd like to give this year: Chocolate mice from L.A. Burdick
