I have neglected my blog. It happens to everyone, right?
At this time every year though, with the sunset earlier and earlier in the evening, I find myself more excited to catch up on posts (mostly from other people), sharing preparations and excitement for the holidays. Something about cozying up to the fireplace with a warm blanket and tea might also have something to do with it.
And that is exactly what I did last night. Eric was away at a work event, Charlotte went to bed early, so I had the evening to read, relax, and enjoy a little solitude.
I asked the question to friends about their Christmas Eve dinner traditions. I'm going to try to be intentional about planning out our meal this year in hopes to start a long lasting tradition that our family can remember.
Criteria for Christmas Eve dinner: simple & not time consuming & delicious...that's it.

If you would like to share your dinner traditions on Christmas Eve, please pass them along!
I typically don't plan this far ahead, but we'll be in Mexico half of December so I wanted to get a head start. I also ordered our Christmas cards already! I know myself and I would just forget to send them out if I waited until after our trip.
Here are two pictures of us that didn't make our card, but I love anyway! Thanks so much to Amy George for the fun photo session.
Until my next opportunity of relaxation...
