Brown paper packages, tied up with strings.

This morning we had a little Christmas celebration at our apartment, just the three of us. Blake has been sick for the last few days and I woke up with a terrible stomachache, so we kept things low key - some Mannheim Steamroller, a brunch with an assortment of our favorite foods, reading on the truest love that we commemorate this season and a few small gifts. We love the idea of gifting meaningful experiences, so we've planned a trip for the coming year as a larger present to each other. We're terribly excited, but more on that later...

We'll likely be inside for the remainder of the day, though the weather in the city is lovely for this time of year. Wish us luck in the fight against illness!
