I love tradition.  One of my favorites is Christmas day with my family.  Every Christmas, we spend the entire day in our PJs.  We start off with a fresh pot of coffee, eventually swap our coffee mugs for champagne flutes and mimosas, break from opening presents to eat breakfast, continue opening presents (one by one) … Continue reading
