We are very lucky here to still be able to spend Christmas with the family. We are at that stage where everyone has flown the nest, but none of the children are as yet married with kids, and so for the moment, they still grace us with their presence for a few days over the holidays. And that makes me very h.a.p.p.y!
We have a few family traditions for the lead up to Christmas Day. An evening in Paris enjoying a theatre show and a good dinner; open house for friends the weekend before Christmas; stockings beneath the tree before breakfast; champagne and gifts before lunch and of course a great many walks with those dogs.
This year has felt particularly busy, and 2019 promises to continue in the same vein, so I am taking time to enjoy the family over the holidays, and things will be a little quiet here. It’s just a question of priorities.
We’ll bring you a giveaway next week, and we’ll keep up the posts on instagram and facebook. Aaand …. at the beginning of January I’ll be announcing something very very exciting, but until then I mostly just want to thank all of you for reading me this year.
The blogging world is changing very fast and after nearly nine years of blogging I am beyond grateful to have such generous readers. Thank you for your comments, for your words of encouragement, and for simply stopping by to check out what I have to say.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy Holiday season, I look forward to catching up with you next year!
