Talk about down to the wire eh? I said I'd get my Christmas posts in before the end of February and here I am on February 28...
It took me a while to get to organizing my photos from Christmas this year. I even took far fewer than normal and still I could not find the spare time to sit down and edit them. I just can't help but feeling I'm always sprinting from one thing to the next lately. It's been nice to have some downtime to relax this winter. Once I learn to stop feeling guilty about taking a day off and being lazy, I'll be set. (Will this ever happen?) Maybe that's why I was so intent on posting something about Christmas and showing off some of the beauty of our time at the lake - it's one of the few places that I can actually unwind and relax without the guilt.
I caught up on my reading, went for walks every day, ate a lot of food, and drank a lot of wine. It was glorious.

Once the presents are opened, it's brunch time. This usually involves a little more bubbly and lots of delicious food. My Nana made Christmas bread as usual. Not only is it delicious, but I think it's totally gorgeous too.
We all settle down for a while (or if you're me, go off for a 5 km run) before dinner prep begins. This year, my parents went non traditional (again) and made lamb. I think they've decided they're done with two turkeys in the span of 3 months. If that means we have lamb instead, that's perfectly fine by me.
