Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Right now, my kitchen counters are covered with ingredients and utensils as I prepare for the 50+ friends coming over tomorrow for our annual Christmas Eve party. We don’t have much family, so a few years ago, we decided to start a tradition with our CHOSEN family! There will be lots of wine and Christmas music… that is, until the hip-hop playlist takes over and a white elephant gift exchange begins! This party and our friends who have become family, have truly taught me that holidays are what you make of them. Wishing you and yours a belly-aching, joy filled holiday with those you love.

PS – Speaking of traditions, one of ours is going to the Christmas tree farm every year. I’ve been meaning to post these photos for a couple of weeks… better late than never!
