january in my head, december in my heart
I haven't taken down a single decoration. The lights are still up- inside and out. We're still watering the tree. Every windowsill is full of greenery and pine cones.
This morning, we came downstairs in our pajamas and did pilates with the fireplace on and Christmas music playing. Just like we've done for the past four weeks.
We had such a lovely December and wonderful Christmas break that I want to keep celebrating it a little longer. Over the break we saw lots of family and old friends, drank plenty of hot chocolate, and had five separate gift exchanges- one that happened at a Cracker Barrel off the interstate. We also got plenty of time at home, ate great food, and went shopping.
Midnight in Paris and roasted chestnuts and had more hot chocolate. The movie was charming. I loved the music and the scenery and the story was sweet and unexpected.
