My family isn’t one to take many photos together. My parents, siblings and I had photos taken when I was a baby at Olan Mills and again when I was 2 or 3. We didn’t have another family photo taken until I was in eighth or ninth grade (circa 2005 or 2006).
Hot chocolate would be my preferred seasonal drink even if eggnog weren’t the grossest beverage on the planet (which it is). When I say hot chocolate, I’m not talking about those Swiss Miss packets you dump into water. That doesn’t count. I’m talking about rich, creamy, made-with-milk, chocolately hot chocolate.
What if instead of asking for material gifts, we all asked for more experiences together? So often after the holidays, I feel overwhelmed by the amount of stuff that’s now cluttering my house. I appreciate the sentiment in every gift I receive. But sometimes, I really don’t need another coffee mug. How many cups of coffee can I drink at once? Not seven, that’s for sure.
I’m someone who always says she’s not that interested in art. But that’s actually a lie. Maybe I don’t know a valuable piece of art when I see one and maybe I don’t find art museums particularly enthralling, but I definitely value the arts. Art extends way beyond paintings and sculptures.
Wine used to be a very classy drink—or at least that’s how I interpreted it when I was younger. All of the names sounded so fancy: Sauvignon blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Merlot. So it must be fancy people drinking them, right?
