I absolutely love the holiday season, and every year, I look forward to Thanksgiving weekend as the perfect time to kick off the celebration. This year was no exception, and we've already managed to squeeze in lots of holiday-related fun.
Here’s a quick look at what we've done so far and what we’ll be up to in the weeks to come.
Thanksgiving Weekend Festivities
-- Feasting on a delicious dinner of peppercorn salmon, roasted sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie in keeping with the pescetarian diet I’ve been following and loving for almost a year now
-- Putting up our tree and decorations, even though we’ve decided to keep things pretty simple after just having gone through the hassle of moving and reorganizing everything we own
-- Buying a new couch to spruce up our apartment and get it looking nice for holiday guests later this month
-- Seeing The Nutcracker at the Kennedy Center
-- Listening to carols while enjoying glasses of wine and a tasty cheese platter at Vintage Ridge, one of our favorite Northern Virginia vineyards

More Fun to Come
-- Heading to a happy hour reunion with my grad school classmates, along with a couple other parties
-- Traveling to New York City with my mom and sister for Christmas itself, which I’m incredibly excited about
-- Attending a piano Christmas concert at the Kennedy Center, along with a New Year's Eve performance of the musical Elf
-- Checking out the Christmas at Mount Vernon holiday displays
|Twix wishes you all a very joyous season!|
