Merry Christmas lovelies! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday filled with family, happiness and joy. Yesterday I got all dolled up for Christmas Eve Dinner and of course- to open my gifts! It’s Polish tradition to open gifts the night before; something I’ve always loved ever since I was a kid. This year, gifts weren’t heavily on my mind as I was more grateful for spending time with my family. Today I did a little bit of last minute gift wrapping and started reading my new book by Katie Heaney that I treated myself to. My parents bought me a lovely watch, and a pair of Canada gloves that were stuffed with money- they’re always trying to find slick ways to trick me and sadly they’re still doing a pretty good job of that! They also surprised me by offering me a trip around Europe once I graduate this year (I’m the first to graduate from University from the family). I’m so excited and am already planning the trip with a friend thanks to my amazing and loving parents.
We also went to the Toronto Christmas Market in the Distillery District. I totally recommend anyone who is in the area to give it a visit! It’s meant to resemble the German Christmas Markets that are up each year, and since my parents are from Europe and visited these markets themselves they loved to have a little piece of Europe right here in Toronto.
I hope everyone is having a lovely Christmas and spending time with their families or loved ones today. Remember to appreciate those closest to you because that’s what this time is truly meant for. Merry Christmas and have a happy New Year!
