Tonight my parents had a family tree-trimming party, with some dinner first. It was so fun... my mom made tasty Curried Pumpkin-Mushroom soup, potato & green bean salad, steamed green beans, and a salad. She made a dairy and non-dairy version of the soup - which was so sweet of her. My grandma brought some AMAZING fat free vegan persimmon bread. What a treat!
It was such a wonderful gathering, and so fun to spend time with my family. I really love them all so much. I came home glowing with love.
I know that the Holiday season is not a happy time for everyone. I feel exceedingly grateful for my loving family, but I would also like to recognize that for some people it's not so cheery. For all of you, I hope you have a warm wintery season.
