139.

Ten reasons I love Christmas:

1. The smell of pine. Everywhere.

2. Having multiple excuses to eat icing out of the bowl.

3. Getting a new Christmas ornament from my mom, and looking through all of the old ones with my siblings (and, inevitably, fighting over which ornaments belong to whom).

4. Having Seth wake me up at the crack of dawn to open our stockings.

5. My mom’s amazing blueberry strata for breakfast.

6. Sipping on hot apple cider while taking pictures in front of the gigantic tree in Los Gatos.

7. {Wrapping paper fights.}

8. Pork tenderloin/lamb/roast beef/whatever new and delicious feat my dad  and stepmom cook up this year.

9.  Still leaving out cookies and milk for Santa. Just because.

10. Staying up late, eating cold pie, with the living room lit by {Christmas lights} and {embers} from the fireplace .

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Why does everything just feel like magic around Christmas? I love it.

I hope you all are gearing up for cozy/delightful/family filled days.

Everyone deserves to have something special happen to them on Christmas.

(This is why I’ve been keeping a little extra change in my pocket, for the sweet man who sits on the corner around from my office. It’s Christmas for pete’s sake.)

    GREAT list! My absolute favorite part of Christmas now is breakfast. My family will make Challah cinnamon french toast, and my boyfriends mom will make a GIANT bacon and cheese omelet and homemade caramel rolls. YUM!!! With all that food, who needs presents (or dinner!) ;)
