Thanks to everyone that commented on your favorite post for the Venchi Italian chocolate giveaway – it was interesting to see which posts have stuck with you!
But only one can win – and the winner, chosen by Random Number generator is:
Beth, I’ll send you an email to get your details – the chocolate won’t be shipped until the New Year.
For the first time, I had a Christmas tree in my house. I grew up with a fresh pine tree each year, that my family and I went to cut down together, much like the Griswolds but without the frostbite. Now, we usually don’t get a tree since we spend the majority of our holidays at my in-laws or in another country, but this year I decided I wanted to start some of our own traditions, and bought a Christmas tree.
Well, a little wooden Christmas tree, actually.
But I love it. We found it at the German Christmas market in Edinburgh, Scotland and brought it back to Italy. It makes me happy – I can spin it around and the little ornaments sway. I had fun deciding where to hang them. And it packs away flat so I can justify its addition to our tiny apartment.
I’ll be offline until after the New Year, so I’m putting comments in moderation so I can relax a bit while I’m away – so don’t be confused if your comment doesn’t show up immediately – I’ll publish them when I get back!
Happy Holidays to everyone and Happy New Year!
