Taking advantage of the final weekend before the Christmas holiday, Michael and I spent the time eating well, finishing up our shopping, and hanging out with friends. Armed with bags of gifts after a productive morning in the Old Port, we met our friends, Cory, Robyn, and their newborn twins for a cozy afternoon brunch at Sonny’s. Then, to celebrate our successful shopping day, we came home and whipped up two milk punches before we settled in for an evening watching classic movies. On Sunday morning, we braved the ice to meet our friends, Betsy & Jon, at the museum to see the 20th century photography exhibit. After a leisurely stroll through the quiet galleries, we decided to refuel with some lunch at Duckfat. We spent Sunday evening cooking up a large batch of bourbon-soaked cherries, wrapping presents, and listening to our favorite Christmas carols.
We’ll still need to make some last-minute runs before Christmas, but it feels good to be in full swing for the holidays. We hope you’re all getting into that merry, festive spirit. Is anyone trying any fun new traditions or recipes this year?
