Around Here.

...we're feeling grateful to be here. It's been three years since the airport figured into our holiday plans and it threw us a curve ball early this morning. Marc's flight was supposed to arrive about ten minutes before Sara's and they'd drive home together. He finally took off four hours late and her flight was on time. So as much as I said I was glad I didn't have to make that drive to the airport...I'm glad I did. It's pretty awesome to be one of those standing in the arrivals area waiting for...and finally greeting...someone special.
We stopped at Whole Foods on the way home. I'm not sure Sara was quite as thrilled as I'd hoped but we got what we needed (and a bar of Mast Brothers chocolate that wasn't even close to being on my list!). We had enough time back at the house to get two holiday drinks underway (winter sangria and Fairytale NY - the photo above is the Winter Warmth simple syrup...I think it's going to be great with bourbon, gin and champagne...pretty much the perfect mix-in, right?) before a quick visit with Charlie (and his parents). And finally home...just a few minutes after Marc (over four hours late, he needed a nap...I would too...and a cocktail!)
Anyway, I've been hoping for over a week that the sun would come out to share a real look "around here." But now it's Christmas Eve and it's still dark least the twinkle lights shine. Here's what it looked like around here earlier this afternoon.
Since then, Sara has transformed that mess of dairy on the kitchen counter into cranberry cheesecake.
Now it looks like Christmas and smells (and sounds - yep, those are real jingle bells on Holly's collar) like it too!
Wishing you warm smells and jingle bells...xo.

Love the soft twinkle lights-around my house-all Christmas bits are sorted, packed and ready for storage. Lots got donated and I have a naked tree in my foyer.

Your home is very beautiful :). And very tenderly cared for too, I think. What a festive and gentle air it has. So glad your Marc and Sara (I have a Mark and Sarah!) arrived safely, albeit not together, and hoping you have had a lovely, lovely time.

It's all so lovely, but I love the photo tree!! One of *my* favorites (even if no one else's) was the year I had nothing but lights, three pretty framed photos of my daughters, and a few streamers on my tree. My favorite things. ;)
