how were your holidays?
christmas was a while ago now but I jotted down a few wonderful whole family (all 5 of us!) moments shared this season that I want to remember forever. like visiting santa together, having a family gingerbread-house-making competition, christmas movie night, lunch with the parents and an extended family brunch where I discovered blue cheese croissants. blue cheese! buttery pastry! zomg. so good.
the two littles' reactions when we turned on the crazy festive lights on our terrace balcony.
the mister and I exchanging silent smiles as they pressed their small faces up to the glass. multicoloured twinkling delight.
the smallest cousins being old enough to play together for the first time this christmas. (so cute.)
walking past the groups of young people partying on the grass -- the teenager was at a party himself -- eating fish and chips on the grass.
staring out over the cool, pale sand.
the kiddo and his papa paddling in the deep.
holding the lady's hands, twirling her through the water. her face beaming up at me. a huge, toothy grin.
her small seawater grip in mine.
slow deliberate steps over the rocks, the seaweed flattened beneath us, water rushing under our feet.
a million drops moving in the opposite direction.
