Christmas Breakfast


Winter got here before I was ready. I'm a life-long lover of all things Christmas and spend most of the year looking forward to it!

Only, this year was different....much different...


First, I got the flu and suffered for 3 miserable weeks. Then, I announced that I wasn't cooking for Thanksgiving. I even went to the trouble of  scoring us seats at a potluck and ended up spending 4 hours in the kitchen....COOKING. I was exhausted by December 1st but I just couldn't let my favorite holiday pass by without making a (little) big deal about it. So, I rousted myself from my deathbed and made breakfast.

I went with a combo of the classics....fluffy & crisp Belgian waffles,  smokey thick cut bacon, and olive oil fried eggs. Keeping the menu simple allowed me to lend my attention to detail to the drinks and flowers. I wasn't rushing or overwhelmed and I actually felt a spark of my usual Christmas joy!

My advice for the holidays?

Remember, the point of it all is to make memories. You can't do that if you're in a corner rocking back and forth obsessing over some tiny detail that other people won't notice anyway.
If it isn't necessary....or kind....don't do it.

The. End.
