A California Christmas

Here are a few snapshots of the days leading up to Christmas in California. We spent time decorating gingerbread houses, putting up our very first tree together, and seeing a beautiful performance of the Nutcracker (that solidified my decision to dance again next semester). 
Decorating gingerbread houses is a tradition of sort around these parts. It was our very first date two years ago. We decorated one last year to commemorate and compared pictures of the two here. Here’s to years more of gingerbread houses!
