every year around christmastime, we have an awesome lil tradition that i love so much, i wanna repeat it at other times throughout the year. not because i'm a glutton for good things (but really, who isn't?) but because it's a fantastic opportunity to slow down and reconnect with the people that make our lives better and happier.
and really, when you can combine reconnecting with food? all the better, i say!
we send out invites to all of our friends - people that we haven't seen in years and would love to have a chance to catch up with, people that we see every day, people we see sometimes but would like to get to know better. all types of people. we pick a saturday morning in early december and tell people that if they'd like, the can swing by anytime between 8 and 1pm. that way, they can get in some visiting while at the same time being able to get some christmas shopping done too.
it's much much easier for people to just pop by for a few minutes (or a few hours!) according to their own schedules, have some breakfast and good company (cause everyone needs a lil bit of both no matter what their plans for the day hold!), have a few laughs and reminisce.
now yes, christmas is a great time to catch up, but why should it be the only time?
the next item on my to-do list: let's do another brunch, but in the sunshine of an early summer morning, out in the backyard. mm. now that's a plan.
