Visiting my sister and her family in Clovis, California.
This visit happened to be the same as the New Years eve visit. We were lucky to be able to spend two major holidays together, as we usually spend them in either Germany or Canada.
This was also the hottest Christmas we had ever experienced, allowing us to decorate a palm tree instead of a pine, just kidding! But wouldn't that be goofy? Of course, my sister had the traditional pine tree brought out and I enjoyed watching the little ones decorate it.
I love Christmas because of the feeling it gives me. Warm comfort of candles and fire places going, sparkly, colourful decorations everywhere and yummy smells of pine tree, cinnamon and baking wafting through the air. I enjoy all of these things but most of all the added bonus of friends and family coming to visit, to me it is the best time of the year, no gifts needed. Of course, I'm a sun girl, so for me to say this means a lot. But it's true, the comfort level of "Christmas" time can not be beat.
Spending it with my sister and her family was so nice and calming. The weather still enjoyable, allowing you to go for a walk in the sun with just a light jacket was perfect. Although, the cherry on top was the fact that my sister also eats keto and therefore together we knocked Christmas dinner and cookies out of the park. Everything was so delicious and guess what? There was no overly stuffed, I feel disgusting, feeling. We all felt great!
