the time of year when all roads lead home
hi friends. i hope your holiday prep is full of good cheer. there’s a holiday delay when you live in florida and i now see why people always say they like the change of season. otherwise it’s groundhog day! i guess i took that detail for granted. i left ny to escape the cold but this year i do miss certain things about winter. it’s hard to get in the holiday spirit in miami what with the sunshine and all. maybe i’m nostalgic. as a kid we’d go to get the tree bundled up wearing duck boots and flannel, dad chopped wood for the fire, mom quilted, we sledded, bing and frank crooned. and we all decorated the stairway, mantle and tree. (for starters)! my parents’ holiday traditions and rituals are reassuring and cozy. i’ll be back in the city on wednesday and can’t wait to really feel this great time of year.
i’m getting my ‘little sis‘ a copy of miracle on 34th street on dvd before i go. (she signed me up on netflix)! it got me surfing their site for other holiday movies to take to my nieces when i spend the night next week. it was around their age that i fell in love with old movies and i hope they do too!
anyway i think i did this last year too, put together a list of great classics. i thought i’d found them all but here are few i added to the cue and hope are here in time to throw in my bag.
i don’t think i’ve seen these two
but these i do love
and this is two in one.
well, it’s the first truly beautiful day in a week so i’m heading out to get the sun while it’s hot! have a great weekend and enjoy this magical time of year where ever you are!
