I hope you all had a very merry holiday last week! I got to do all the stuff I wanted: to go for a sunny hike with my dad and the dogs, to gorge myself of mountains of Greek food, and to luxuriate in my mom’s bathtub (cocktail in hand, of course). Plus, Noodle got to meet my family! I have to say, he was so well-behaved. I wasn’t sure how he’d be around lots and lots of people in a new place, but he was such a champ even after hours in the car shuttling between family members’ houses.
My gift to Noodle, a Christmas ham.
Gotta have eggnog, right?
I went to brunch with my friend Bekah from That’s Normal at Cafe La Maude on Saturday. Aside from the delicious Lebanese French cuisine, I indulged in such much-needed caffeine and these gorgeous macarons. If you’re in Philly, this is a must for brunch or just a quick coffee and pastry.
Does anyone else get pensive at the end of the year? I certainly do. Here’s to some fresh starts this year…
