Merry Christmas my friends

This holiday season flew by.  I can’t believe it’s already over.  This Christmas we decided to celebrate in Los Angeles.  In the past I’ve always gone home to Canada or to Spain to visit our family.  This year we finally ended up having Christmas at our home in LA.  My parents flew in and we celebrated with my Brother and Sister in Law and niece.  Celebrating with children really brings back the magic of the holidays.

 Carlota was so excited opening her presents, listening to christmas carols, and eating all the delicious food.  I’m so lucky to have a husband who loves to cook…and is really good at it.  He made such a feast of Classic Catalan Christmas dishes , after lunch, we watched Home Alone and most of us passed out.  Later in the evening we did the Caga tio (a Catalan tradition of hitting a log and then finding little gifts if you’ve been nice).  Carlota got really excited as we each took our turns and somehow ended up helping each of us.  We ended the night sitting around the kitchen table having coffee and slovak cookies and just enjoying eachothers company.  What more can you ask for?

As I sit here thinking about the momentous day, I can’t help but get excited about some new traditions we will incorporate to our future Christmases.

My heart is so full as I’m able to share these holidays with my loved ones.  This really is the meaning of the holidays and that was on full effect for me this year.  What did you do yesterday?  What is one of your family’s traditions?

With Love,

Who else struggles with getting that perfect, unique gift for their significant others?  This year is even more challenging for me.  Most of my time is spent chasing a toddler around, and trying to make her holidays special.  I’m really looking forward to Christmas.  This will  be our first year celebrating in Los Angeles and hosting our family Christmas Day.  I can’t wait to wake up Christmas morning at home, see the joy in Carlota’s eyes as the tree is filled with presents and the day is filled with family and love.

My husband has always had a thing for watches.  It’s been so hard to get one for him since he’s also very particular.  When I came across JORD, I knew this would be a perfect gift for the man that is so hard to shop for.  He definitely didn’t have a watch that was remotely similar.  I went with the Conway series in Walnut and Jet Black.  This watch has a classic design with modern detailing…the perfect mix for my hubs.  What’s your perfect combo??
