I’m not typically one to decorate for the holidays. The holidays are actually quite depressing for me, I mean, only in my head, but still. Thats actually why I left New England. I wanted to try to escape the winter blues… turns out it’s more than the weather that bums me out.. I’m a Christmas and New Years wah-face. Ok, well I always knew that, even as a 12 year old, sitting around, confused to why I was sad on New Years, but whatever, it was a good reason to escape cold and dark winters. Luckily, the nice weather helps a lot. A lot-a lot. I discussed this a bit last year, but I really want to try to bring a little bit of Christmas cheer around here for Marlowe, with minimal gifts, but lots and lots of love.
Alex, Marlowe, and I hung out on the couch for the better part of the morning. I made sure to get every single task I possibly could out of the way on Sunday, so that on Monday we could do any and everything or nothing at all. I lounged with my feet propped up, eating toast, in a very much “I’m happy to do anything. This is your day off” mood. Without fail, like every day off, (just like I knew he would) Alex wanted tacos. We headed to Palm Beach and enjoyed the beautiful winter weather (hehehe) for a few moments before lunch. The rest of the day continued with: purchasing Christmas decorations, making dinner, hanging lights, and cutting out tiny christmas trees.
