on christmas eve

The morning began with a makeshift mimosa. We used white wine & club soda instead of bubbly champagne and it was a nice way to celebrate life. I've always considered the holidays a time made for eating good food and looking into the eyes of loved ones. My dad doesn't have to rise early for work, our dining room table becomes a puzzle, the liquor cabinet stays open and everyone's a little more willing to bite their tongues and let things be. Family and feasts make my Christmas, C h r i s t m a s. The gifts underneath the garland and pine are just added fun.

Eshakti.com sent me this dress as an early Christmas gift. I'm so pleased with it. The shape and color remind me of something my grandmother would have worn. Although she's not around to sit beside the fire with me, its nice to wear something that rekindles her spirit. You can look through Eshakti's online store here or follow their facebook. They will make you a custom style and fit on any dress your heart clings to. This one is desirable for all of my holiday celebrations !

Well I have to go on my way - my Mum is making a mixed appetizer dinner and I don't want to miss out on any of those jalapeno poppers.  No matter how you celebrate this time of year, whether its with gift-giving or caroling, fireplace glow or candle light, away in a manger or run Rudolph run, a real tree a fake tree or no tree at all! I hope you do so in the company of happiness.

don't forget to leave out carrots for Santa's reindeer & Remember love weighs more than gold!
