My mom and brother did up their place real nice for the holiday. I mean real nice. They’d be a great addition to the window dressing team at Bergdorf Goodman.
My favorite roast beef sandwiches and mincemeat cookies around the fire while exchanging gifts. Mom surprised me with a Chip Kidd book I’d long since forgotten about.
I was exhausted by this point and loaded up a nifty new backpack and headed out.
Though I didn’t get around to everything I had hoped to accomplish, the holiday was (insert some word that means warm, nice, loving, simple).
