There’s just something about this time of year that brings us right back to our childhood. It’s probably because of all the holiday festivities that find us surrounded by the family and often seated at the kids’ table (not sure if they’ll ever let us outgrow it), but either way, it always has us feeling pretty nostalgic. We often tell stories of years past like how we used to write a Christmas play every year and gave our grandfather the lead role as Santa Claus with our brother as the lead elf named Alfred. (They were such good sports!)
Lucky for us, there is never a dull moment with our family. The fun memories are continually being made that we’re sure to retell in the years ahead. This year, we are looking forward to our annual Family Christmas Staycation, creamed eggs at Mimi’s on Christmas morning and counting all our blessings, including the special little ones growing in our bellies. As we prepare to kick off two weeks full of holiday traditions and Christmas celebrations, we wanted to share a few sneak peeks of our Christmas-inspired editorial to help you get in the Christmas spirit as you plan your tablescape, prepare your menus and make your lists.
