Less than one month until 2017!!!!

It is going to be a quick post today!  First, I want to tell you guys that I had a spectacular weekend last weekend.  I couldn't tell you what was going on in case my dad read my blog post last week.  Mom threw Dad a surprise 60th birthday party.  My brother and his wife flew in from Chicago, fraternity brothers that my dad hasn't seen in over 30 years came in, long time work associates, family friends, and of course family all were there to party to the sounds of a Bruce Springsteen tribute band called, Tramps Like Us!  It was an amazing time!  My dad was totally surprised.  My mom did such an awesome job with all the planning and I know that Dad was just so touched by all of it.  And Tramps Like Us was absolutely incredible.  It was like having the real Bruce Springsteen there.  Totally awesome.

So, I know that a lot of people are looking forward to the end of 2016.  I guess in a lot of ways people think it was kind of a crappy year.  I can't say that I feel the same (I had a lot of great things happen for me in 2016), but I think that many people are ready to start anew in 2017.  I personally am very much looking forward to Christmas.  There was one year where I didn't feel like I was in the Christmas spirit at all, but the past few years I have really loved the season.  I pride myself on figuring out really creative and personal gifts.  It makes me happy when I find the perfect thing for someone on my list.  I also love writing poems to go along with those gifts.  I have written at least one poem each Christmas for the past 3 years.  My brother, his wife, me, Matt, and my parents always cook Christmas Eve dinner together.  It usually has a theme.  This year, we have decided that we are going to do a "Julia Child" themed Christmas Eve dinner.  More to come on this...

Have you done any shopping yet?  I haven't.  Did you know that we are offering gift packs this year?  Each gift pack is slightly discounted (one is $20+ off!) and they have been curated to go along with holiday meats.  Ham, turkey, beef, veal, lamb...coming soon will be the Seven Fishes gift pack!  We are including a personalized card with a gift note on it (if you are sending it to someone other than yourself, that is!  Even if you are sending it to yourself and you want a note written, I am happy to oblige!).  Here is what the card looks like: 

Isn't that so cute?  Doesn't that snowman just look like he is having the greatest time?

I am heading out now.  Matt and I are going down to the Franklin Institute to check out the new Jurassic World exhibit!  It should be awesome.  Until next time...
