I have always wanted to host a classic Christmas open house. I think of the candles, goodies, hot drinks, coats and scarves piled on a bed, the music, the door opening and closing each time guests come or leave allowing a welcomed burst of outside cold into the warm cozy home, I love it all. Well, this year I got my wish. I had such an enjoyable (and exhausting) time baking and decorating for the party. It was a beautiful night with lots of friends. Come join us next year.
