Merry Christmas from Teaspoon of Nose!
We’re taking a bit of a break from the blog to celebrate and enjoy the next few days. I hope you do too!
We’re spending Christmas in town, taking it easy. I’m excited for our little celebrations, including a homemade version of our annual Chinese food Christmas Eve feast and a pasta Christmas dinner!
(Who here is surprised that our celebrations revolve around food?)
My hope for you this Christmas is that it’s a time of reflection on what matters. The season so easily turns into obligation and spending money on “stuff” for the sake of expectation. But here’s to embracing the joys in life, the gifts we’ve already been given, and recognizing the meaningful relationships we have.
