[here is christmas] | boston, ma

The night was black and velvet
 The stars were all around
 A stranger landed lightly on the frosty ground
 His eyes were wide with wonder filled with stars and space
 He'd searched the heavens over till he found this place
 A sweet and snowy carol echoed in his ears 
A song so faint and distant, so strong it drew him here
 Here is Christmas come inside, here is Christmas far and wide
 A thousand candles burning bright
 Here is Christmas shining in our eyes
{a.wilson - n. wilson - r. zito}

we were sure we made the right decision to change up christmas this year by this reaction.  the boston ballet's nutcracker on christmas eve in my beloved boston, dinner at teatro, a cozy room at the gorgeous nine zero, cookies and milk for st. nick, a bubble bath in a large tub, a christmas story on repeat, the beautiful boston roof tops, the sleepy city from our window, hot coffee and croissants delivered to your bed, the delight of santa presents in a hotel room, an early morning walk christmas day on the common, the calm cold air, pho in chinatown, the excitement of driving home to newburyport, did santa come while we were gone?!!! 

what do you think?!!

 best.christmas.ever. xoxo
