Christmas prep is already in full swing in my home. The Advent calendar is assembled, the trunk of my wagon is quickly filling up with packages, I’ve already hit a number of holiday fairs, and I’m having a ball finding presents for my friends and family. I’ve let folks know however, that this year no gifts for me, please. Nothing tangible that is, experiences are very welcome.
After cleaning out my family home on Martha’s Vineyard this summer, my house is not only full of my things, I now have paintings, rugs, two extra sets of silver, my great-grandmother’s china for 50, and masses of “stuff” waiting to be unpacked—needless to say, space is tight.
Instead, I’ve asked my family to join me on a number of fun experiences this Christmas—dinner at Blue Hill, a road trip to Catskill, NY, and concerts. I know they will add to this list with creative ideas of their own.
