Last night the bests and I gathered together for a Christmas celebration. I am lucky enough to say that my friends and I always make time to see each other throughout the year. We don't have to wait for a holiday or occasion to get together. But, we- of course- make time to celebrate the important dates as well.
And what is more important than the day Santa shimmys down your chimney?!
This year, we instituted the 1st Annual Holiday Ornament and Wine Exchange. We'll come up with a shorter, more fun name later.
We gathered pot-luck-style to eat, drink and be merry amongst friends. We each brought a bottle of their favorite wine with an ornament hung on the neck. To trade, we rolled dice. Doubles gets to choose a bottle!
I won my best friend's ah-mazingly cute Crate and Barrel Owl Ornament!
After the exchange, we sat around enjoying our recently-won bottle of vino, Christmas cookies and board games.
Before the night ended, my best friend presented Nicole and I with two gifts from her mother. A framed picture of the three of us from when we were in Limited Two and Sketchers. It was the perfect way to end the night, and such a thoughtful present. I'd almost forgotten how little we once were.
I hope you are all enjoying your time with family and friends this holiday season.
