Merry Christmas

As the sun is setting, I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas.

I hope you all had a wonderful day with your family, friends, and loved ones.

I spent the day on the beach in Aruba with my family, and it was perfect.

Merry Christmas! Or as they say in Aruba, Bon Pasco!

    Merry Christmas! I’d love to spend the holidays on a warm, sunny island–even if I only get to do it once. It would just be so opposite of what I’ve experienced every other year of my life. Those beach views always look spectacular!

      You should do it at least once, Paula! I’ve been doing this for 15+ years now, to the point I equate Christmas day with sweating, not shivering, when I think about the day any other day of the year :) Merry Xmas and hope you had a great day!

      Thanks, Belinda, and hope you had a great xmas! And the day we both made similar desserts, and yours was with quinoa though, I saw it totally rockin’ on Foodgawker in almost the top row. Congrats!

    I’m glad you had a good Christmas! I had a very nice one as well. The only thing I’d change is to be somewhere warm and I’m hoping all that will change by next year. It was a day of great company, delicious food, fabulous presents, and lots of movies … just what it should be :)

      Thanks, Linda! I hope you’ve had a ‘warm’ Christmas, too! You know, above freezing would be good in your neck of the woods :)

    A bit belated but Bon Pasco to you too, Averie!!
    I’ve shoveled my sidewalk (and roof!) two times today – Aruba never looked so good!
