Christmas around

neighborhood lighting up

gifts already sent to far off and unmet family members

taking notes from edgy santa

trusted with the secret family christmas cranberry-nut bread recipe

it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here, the kind where baking and family and wrapping of gifts are involved. the parts i like. away from malls and christmas music and old men with white beards.  i'm not biggest christmas fan, but maybe more on that later once i find my misplaced soap box.

  1. That's funny because I for some reason pictured you as a Christmas fan. Maybe it was the conversations about the awesomeness of having a summertime Christmas in South Africa. I have a very love/hate relationship with the holiday. Hope yours is a good one this year. xo

  2. yeah it's a love/hate thing too, i do really miss the relaxed warm version of my South Africa Christmas vibe... BBQ, pool/beach, sunburn... ah those good ol days. hope you guys have a pleasant and merry festive season that side. xxx
