Yesterday we had our own little Christmas in Boston. We woke up, put the record player on, brewed up some coffee and plowed into unwrapping some gifts. It was everything a Christmas before Christmas should be– festive, relaxing, and happy. Zan made out with some new sweaters, monogramed coasters, ski socks, and a fishing gadget to make his own lures.  I came away with a brand new ski helmet and a mini-iPad! What. A. Treat! This morning I’m on the road driving to Connecticut for the week. I’m so excited to spend time with my family. And to experience the magic with little Hope!

Here’s to wishing you the happiest Christmas. {And all the cookies you can eat.}

Much love to you and yours today, tomorrow, and always.

And remember,

“Teacher says, every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings.” ♥
