Chestnuts and Such!

One can barely believe that this time of year has even come around this fast, but here we are in the thick of it all. Busy streets, lit up houses and desperate shoppers all over the place. The thing I want to cherish a little more this year is family and friends and take note of old traditions. Every year back home, we’d always rely on our mother to make Thanksgiving and Christmas magical, but this year WE made Thanksgiving pretty magical with my sister visiting and us all cooking together.

Out of all the Christmas traditions, there is one that I have never done and that is roasting chestnuts on an open fire.  It;s just never really presented itself as an action in my life, but this year
I think I’m gonna make it a point to do that this year. This year I will make memories that we can laugh about for years to come.

With recent shootings and terrorist threats all around the world, may we draw closer to God and even closer to our family and loved ones!

I truly wish you all happy holidays and will see you again right here in February…just in time for black history month. 🙂

Cheers to the holidays and happy New Year!!!

  1. I think this is a beautiful idea and I can’t wait to hear about what memories you started this Christmas. I think sometimes tradition is what allows us to hold on to the little innocence that we have left in a world full of chaos. I miss my family sometimes 😦 (they are in Saint Louis and I am in Chicago).
