Best gift I ever received:
There are a lot of wonderful ones, but the first one that comes to mind is this snow globe that Ryan engraved with one of my favorite Wendy Cope poems.
When they ask me, 'Who's your favorite poet?'
I'd better not mention you,
Though you certainly are my favorite poet
And I like your poems too.
Snow is already a big romantic symbol to us because we met in the winter time and spent many of our first dates sledding and playing in the snow.
My family has this weird tradition:
My parents usually make an avant-garde tree out of newspaper, or coat hangers or something. This year, they're too busy though, so they have a real tree.
If I could only buy all my gifts from one place, I'd shop at:
Hobby Lobby and make them all.
Rudolph the Red-nose Reindeer or Frosty the Snowman:
My favorite holiday memory:
The time my sister-in-law's dog Bogey ate the entire cheese ball in one bite while we were in the next room (it happened in like a second!) and spent the rest of the night moaning that he'd had to much to eat. We laughed so hard.
My favorite Christmas movie:
Probably Love Actually, but I'm partial to Elf, It's a Wonderful Life, and The Family Stone as well.
The best part about holiday decorations is:
Making paper snowflakes for the windows
Rip off the wrapping paper or neatly pull of the tape:
I've always been a neatly-pull-off-the-tape kind of person.
Miracle on 34th Street of It's a Wonderful Life:
Absolutely It's a Wonderful Life, maybe because my mom always liked it so much.
It doesn't feel like the holidays season until:
It snows. Which means this year it never will. Super bummed.
All I want for Christmas is:
My loved ones around me, good food, and snow.
