Christmas dinner is usually so wonderful that I always think I will never forget it, but here I sit wondering what the heck we had last year. I remember the guests, which really is the most important thing to remember.
No guests this year, but Jessica is home from college so that's the memory I'll keep for sure; her sitting at the table, in the usual spot. It's funny how quickly we changed our routine when she left, but I love how natural it was to fall right back into it.
So here I sit listening to Julie Andrews Christmas songs (and really, is there any better voice for Christmas songs than hers?) and finish a wonderful glass of wine while waiting for my food coma to kick in. We had such a wonderful dinner this year!
