Nothing says family like the Holidays! And with Christmas in five weeks, I’ve been creating menus, gathering recipes, decorating the table, and getting the house ready for family, food, and fun. This year, we are hosting Christmas at our Memphis home and I am way too excited! PS – I am already really in love with the Holiday tablescape I’m creating this year (post coming soon – see last year’s here). But I’m sure I will have to clear the table settings to make room for actual dining.
The short and sweet of it: Today, my family and I are en route to Brazil for our Holiday vacation. This is the first time I’ve spent Christmas outside of the United States. So I’m feeling kinda bitter-sweet about it. The one great thing about this trip? Temps are in the 90s! No cold…No shivering…No electric blanket! Only shorts, tanks, summer dresses, sandals, bikinis, and cocktails!
