True Love

Ah, Christmas break. A time where families all over the nation stay home and spend uninterrupted time really getting to know each other again.  The level of family bonding is unparalleled during this time of year, except perhaps during trips to Disney World.  It’s a wonderful time.

During the week between Christmas and the New Year, my family typically spends time together tucked away indoors, where we relearn each other's idiosyncracies and endearing habits. We might also find out one or two new things about each other, which is lovely and can only serve to bring us closer.

This week, I am getting a fresh new perspective on my son’s laser-sharp animosity towards every single thing I announce for dinner.

I also realized that my daughter has not only one hiding place which she uses to escape from us regularly for hours on end, but three.

My husband is in love with Bradley Cooper.  This truth was uncovered just today, when he was on his fourth hour of his own private Bradley Cooper movie marathon.

My family members are learning some things about me, too.  Red before white wine, and only white when desperate.

Cheers to you and your families.  May the New Year bring new and exciting treasures for you and yours to uncover.
