Home for the Holidays

I really love being home for the holidays. I think if I were to ever move far away, the month of December would be the toughest. It's more than just the physical space that is 'home' that I would miss though, it's the people that make it home. The people that love & accept you no matter what. And even if you're not home for Christmas this year, I do hope you get to spend it with those you love & love you.

I mean, where else can you get away with an ornament like above?? Haha

Our tree is full of ornaments collected (or made) over the years. There's some from friends, some older than me, some just because they're pretty and some that come out every year no matter what. There's no themed tree here, but it makes me smile none-the-less :)

Grandma's shortbread is just the best. She makes it every year and knows the recipe by heart. This year I made two batches with her supervision and I think they turned out pretty well! Not quite like hers yet though :)

Hope you're having a wonderful week :)
