|"It's the most wonderful time of the year"|
Occasionally, my family comes together for a meal. This becomes increasingly harder due to schedules and lifestyles across three different cities, but we take advantage of such moments, like this morning, to celebrate family and togetherness.
This time it was first Christmas for first baby in our family (niece, grandchild, great-grandchild) with a special gathering around a secluded table. Nothing more than a quiet room, crackling fire, dainty red bows on the chandeliers overhead, and conversation of the past year gone by. It was idyllic like a Norman Rockwell postcard, and especially comforting after several mimosas. Celebrating holidays gets no better than such moments.
