Around the House: A Look Back at Christmas Dinner

Monday, January 6, 2014

There are those moments in life where you reach certain milestones that just, in all honesty, require a self-given pat on the back. That happened to me over Christmas. Y'all, I cooked the entire Christmas dinner myself - with the exception of my Mom's help with the sweet potatoes. Turkey and all. Me - the self-professed kitchen hater. And guess what else? It was good. I mean really good. Can I get a what what?
And while everything was cooking, I knocked out this table setting that I'm kind of in love with...
2013 was a year full of firsts - some really good and some I never want to relive. The first holidays without my Dad are behind us now and while there was a deep void, new memories were made and there were proud moments as well. So let me say it one more time, just because it feels so dang good... y'all, I cooked Christmas dinner, turkey and all! Here's to the new year with new memories and lots of proud moments for us all! xo
