Happy holidays, everyone! I’m currently enjoying a vacation down in the foothills of North Carolina, where all of the family—which as many of you may remember is quite large, since I grew up as the oldest of five siblings—has gathered together and filled up the entire house, top to bottom.
For this year’s upcycled Christmas tree, we found a dead tree in the woods, preserved it, and turned it into something more colorful. I love the notion of this: taking something that was dead on the ground, and creating something beautiful from it, giving it new life. It’s definitely one of the most unique Christmas trees in memory.
Tonight, we’ll hit the road to New Orleans, where we can finish out the year in celebration of all of the things that have happened since the dawn of 2015. Then we’ll begin the long drive back up to New England.
2015 has been an amazing year, and I hope 2016 is even better. Hope all of you are having a beautiful holiday season, and enjoying whichever holiday you choose to celebrate.
