Scott and I tend to wake up first, somewhere around 6-to-8am, which makes us look like the most eager (which we probably are!).
The first thing we do is walk the dogs. This year I got them two cute Christmas sweaters, which I’m particularly excited to unveil. During our walk, we might stop for a coffee at Maman or Happy Bones.
Rather than dinner, we celebrate with a huge Christmas breakfast. Our household loves to have as many carbs as possible: cinnamon rolls, pastries, pancakes, waffles—we’ve been known to do it all.
My husband dresses up the table with his silver collection, and we get a nice little arrangement at a local flower shop. I’m vegetarian so I’ll usually have some sort of vegetarian sausage with some potatoes (I’m more of a savory person than a sweet one!). I’ll have drip coffee if I didn’t get one while out walking the dogs, and Scott will have espresso in one of the espresso cups that we’ve collected from all over Italy.
