Merry Christmas ♥


Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a time to slow down that gives us the opportunity to pause and reflect on the important things around us. It allows us to look back on the year we’ve had and prepare us for the upcoming one. It is about being grateful for all the small things around you, the spirit of giving without a thought of getting, the laughter of the people close to us and forgetting self and spending time with loved ones. I’m thankful for where my life has taken me, I feel comfortable in my own skin and blessed for all that has happened. It all comes down to a long christmas dinner spent with your closest and discarding the meaningless and remembering true values.  Christmas is a feeling, a day that holds all time together. We celebrated at my parents house yesterday and today similarly at my husbands parents. It was just perfect, it was my nephews first Christmas and he was cuter than ever and we were blessed to have one of my closest friends join us this year as well. This morning we slept in longer than usual and made some traditional rice porridge with pomegranate, baked fresh coconut and sprinkled cinnamon on top. A warm cup of apple glögi and just relax doing nothing. We are going to enjoy these lazy Christmas days and gather energy for the new year. I must say, the best of all gifts is the presence of my loved ones. Merry Christmas and be safe, kind and grateful for it all.
