I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas/Hanukkah/anything else you may celebrate! We had a really wonderful week off work visiting Craig’s family and several of our friends in Nashville and then heading back home to Atlanta to spend some time with my family. I just love this time of year — especially the lights, music, food, and fun. For me, it’s a season of giving, spending time with those you love, and being thankful for our great, many blessings. Here’s a recap of our holiday week…. it’s hard to believe it’s already over and that we’re focusing on the coming new year!
Early Christmas dinner at Craig’s grandparents’ house with his little sister and his brother’s girlfriend… and Coco who was not interested in smiling for a photo.
The lights in the Cottonwood neighborhood in Franklin put the Atlanta neighborhoods to shame. So many festive houses!
Happy Hour @ Urban Grub with one of my besties
Christmas with the Sims family in ATL (notice Riley is much better than Coco is at posing for photos…)
Yep — this was my Christmas night dinner!
One of my favorite Christmas traditions is hosting a big dinner at our house every year for our family and my SIL’s parents who live in town. It’s so fun getting together with them, and we just love the chance to host everyone. My dad always fries a turkey, and this year, Coco got a prime spot for carving.
As part of dessert, we served some of the icewine I brought back from Napa (which is actually made in Canada). It’s super sweet, but it was fun to share.
Here’s looking forward to what 2015 has to bring!!
Atlanta folks sure know how to do Christmas lights. Oh, and that bird looks delicious.
