roasted chestnuts + a very merry day to be alive

the world didn't end today. In fact instead, my happy things happened. People flew home to see their families. My parents celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary. Lots of little babes sat on Santa's lap and others sang Christmas carols in the choir, their cherub voices drowning out the noise of hate or loss. To celebrate, we're lighting a fire and roasting a batch of chestnuts, and getting right into the Christmas mood. I was about to tell you how, but Bon Appetit covered that for me this month {see their recipe here} which means more time to quiet my mind and enjoy being here....

In the days ahead, I hope you have the chance to really live, to be in every moment with every one you dearly love. Merry, merry Christmas.
