2015 Holiday Shenanigans

The holidays in 2015 came and gone at the blink of an eye and though we’re in March already, I don’t want to miss posting some photos to document our 2015 holiday shenanigans!

Shortly after our Thanksgiving Lake Tahoe trip, we trimmed our Christmas tree, hosted a holiday party with our friends, and then another one for our cousins after Mimi, Brian and Brianne arrived. In between all that, we did get to enjoy the festivities of the city, including an overnight stay at the Fairmont in San Francisco, where the girls got to see the famous life size gingerbread house.

This was the day where my car had a flat tire in S.F. on a rainy day...sure couldn't tell from the happy smiles on their faces as we made a pit stop to our favorite B's Patisserie! :)

The holidays have always been my favorite time of the year. I love how magical it feels to walk down tree lined streets with twinkling lights. I love admiring the different holiday decor on houses and store windows. I love the festivities that promises delicious food and sweets. But most of all, I love the way it brings friends and family together…the excuse it gives us to gather together for amazing food, entertaining conversations, and fun times.
