Christmas x 1

Why Christmas is so important to me:

It’s about the sugar. Being up to your elbows in powdered sugar, icing, cookies, fudge, and sticky buns.

It’s about the people. Being up to your elbows in uncles, aunts, cousins, sisters, brothers, moms, dads, grandparents.

It’s about the laughter. Being up to your elbow in I-can’t-breathe, My-side-hurts, I’m-crying, laughter.

It’s about the food. Being up to your elbows in handmade, homemade, loved over, hot, heirloom recipes from one generation to the next.

It’s about the feeling of fullness. Because you just can’t take one more moment of the people that matter most.
