christmas was everything we needed it to be. it was simple and touching and centered on our love for each other and the One. we opted for only a few gifts this year, mainly because consumerism hurts and because the only things we really needed weren't things at all.
what i will remember most about this christmas:
~my husband's thoughtful gifts, wrapped beautifully and the way he played christmas songs on the piano every night
~my mama's clam chowder + crab
~our date the friday before christmas in san francisco, where we ran down streets holding hands and had christmas champagne at the fairmont, (and were like giddy school kids)
~ steve taking over the second batch of homemade caramel corn after i burned the beezezus out of my hand (and the way he got a litte too into perfecting it)
~morning sink baths
~steve's egg + avocado sandwiches on christmas morning
~this song, on repeat
~french press in hand, watching the christmas tree lights scatter across gus' face
this season was sweet and it will go into that special place inside, where i record all that i hold dear.
