Christmas Eve

Possibly My Favorite Day of the Year


My sweetheart and I flew to South Carolina yesterday to spend Christmas with his family. I am having such a nice time, but he unfortunately has the flu. We were that couple yesterday on the plane. I felt so sorry for him. But he still had a sense of humor and caught this photo of an older gentlemen who was kind of enough to get so close and personal in my seat for a couple of minutes!





After a quick flight, his mother greeted us and we drove to Beaufort from Savannah and had crabcakes from Barbara Jean's (written up by Southern Living for their crabcakes.) Delicioso!



I'm so thankful to have Christmas Eve off for the first time in a few years. It truly is one of my favorite days of the year. I finally get to stop this fast-paced month of December and enjoy all the little things Christmas is about...

Here is my Tiffany ornament on the  tree!



Listening to the FAO Schwartz Bear read Twas' the Night Before Christmas!
& reading My Life in France by Julia Child,
my sweetie got it for me for Christmas!



Lots of snacking of course!



Snuggling with puppies in Christmas sweaters...



& wearing Christmas socks!


Anticipating lots of good homecooked food for our gathering tonight...
& awaiting Santa & Rudolph's visit tonight!



Hope you have a joyous & relaxing Christmas Eve
filled with great festivities!
