Home for the holidays
Tyler and I ventured home for some much needed TLC this Christmas. We're both overworked and we desperately miss our families and we could hardly wait to get there. We were feeling a little torn this year and made the decision to be apart and join back up again on Christmas day. That night my mum had a late night fondue which is always a treat for me, there isn't anything I enjoy more than laughing hysterically with family, sharing memories over a long dinner and drinking delicious wine.
The next morning I headed over to Bill and Penny's. They greeted me with giant hugs and kisses and we passed a really wonderful day together. Tyler's brothers and Natasha, (Travis's girlfriend) were there too. They are such a fun bunch!
Penny is always cooking and baking, it feels like we're gourmet food testers. She's planning to open a cafe in the spring and I couldn't be happier for her. That's her gingerbread biscotti above that she lovingly sent me home with! I'm enjoying it right now as we speak with a cup of fresh brewed tea, thanks to my mumma for the kettle, now I can have tea in the shop!
Tyler and I arrived home last night because we both had to work early today. We slept well thanks to the custom down filled pillows dad gave us for Christmas from The Feather Factory.
Tonight we're joining him and his new girlfriend, Alice, for our Christmas dinner.
I'm sending you warmth and love this holiday season. If you don't have plans for New Year's Eve, come to Poor John's with a canned good or $5 dollars. Doors open at 8:30pm.
A centre piece made this morning for Heather and Kyle.
