This year Steak and I will not be together for Christmas. I will be in Illinois and he will be in San Diego. Don't feel too bad for us yet: I'll be meeting Steak in San Diego on Wednesday!
Because we won't be together for the holiday, we decided to celebrate Christmas two days early. Steak made a rack of lamb and we popped a bottle of Champagne that my boss had given me a few days earlier. Then we exchanged gifts under the tree and watched the Grinch on ABC Family. We ended the night with some homemade vanilla ice cream and homemade cranberry sauce. It was a wonderful night!
