'twas the night before christmas

CHRISTMAS is HERE!! woah. These last weeks have literally flown by! I’ve absolutely loved being back home & spending time with my wonderful family. There’s just something about the sights, scents, sounds, tastes, and overall spirit of Christmas. Today was absolutely blissful. My best friend Maura & I spent the day together decorating cookies, caroling, seeing lights galore, and enjoying christmas movies. We also made a clementine candle, thank you PINTEREST. There are some unique things that Vienna does around Christmastime that I completely forgot about. Tonight, it was such a wonderful surprise to see neighbors putting luminaries all over the sidewalks. It completely brightened up our neighborhood & looked like a winter wonderland. I’m so thankful that we were able to spend this time together, as I’ll be leaving again so soon. 
I hope your Christmas Eve was merry and bright as well. Merry Christmas to all & to all a good night!!!!
