Things that I love about Christmas, the fact that it's just us four enjoying a slow paced day without the running and fussing about. About 5 years ago Matty and I made an active decision to prioritise our peace and sanity during the festive season which means that we are not running between "families", forcing the kids into the car and spending 40% of the day driving from place to place. It's such a nice relief to actually look forwards to Christmas day knowing that we can actually put our feet up and watch the kids have a rad day with us.
Today was about as relaxing as it could get, a christmas morning opening thoughtfully bought gifts + a swim and a surf at our local beach, followed by a day of eating fresh seafood, fruits, smashed pavlova and slow cooked meats, cocktails and wine and then inevitably followed by what will soon be a restful food-coma-induced sleep.
I hope you had a peaceful and joyous day filled with delicious treats, wine, sunshine and a swim!!
