After years of matching velvet and or taffeta dresses, black patent Mary-jane shoes, miniature red blazers, coordinated gift wrap and fifty plus relatives for Christmas eve dinner, we have now pretty much dialed it down.

For five of the last six years have flown all six kids out west, northern CA and this year for the first timeĀ southern CA, La Jolla. Rent a house with as many bedrooms as we can find, settle in and dial down.

So great after decadesĀ of fancy cooking, elaborate gift wrap, staged professional Christmas photos, we all now kind of just come together and get it done. Cards hand-addressed on the flight and in the restaurant, photo taken once when we’re all in town, (so what if they arrive after the perceived big day), and all hands on deck for wrapping and meal prep.

It’s really all about spending time with those you love. And while we can at times be all about fancy clothes and pressed starched linens, now it feels just right to be dialed down.

Every day dress, dialed down. Merry Christmas everyone. We’re keeping the celebration going. xo
