Sometimes A+B+C = L

Christmas.

What does it mean to you? To me it means a time to remember all the ways you want to be a better person1. In a way, Dec 1st2 marks the beginning of a ‘New Year’. Christmas is about acceptance. Christmas is about respect. Christmas is about love and understanding. Even if you don’t feel like you’re getting a lot of any of these things. Because you should never give of anything of these things with the expectation that you will get any in return. Yes, it would be nice but if you only do something because you hope that you get it back in return then you’re doing it wrong. Do it because simply doing it makes YOU happy. And if it doesn’t? Well, shit son I haven’t a clue.

Last christmas3 was possibly one of the worst Christmasses I ever had to endure. It was a character building sort of period. And this year… I decided I would not let that happen. And the best way I know to get into the Christmas spirit is to bake. Now, it’s all well and good to bake for cookies but if I knew my motivation this year I knew I’d need a big push to get off my ass and actually bake cookies. I would have thrown a dinner party but my place is too small for that. I was going to throw a cocktail party but that’s been done. So I put a spin on it: Appetizers, Beverages and Cookies. You bring your own A & B and I’ll provide the C. And the Love will come naturally… and come it did4!

There was such a wonderful collection of people who attended that I can’t help but feel blessed to have such amazing people in my life. And before I leave you with the pictures, I’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out and filling my home with such love and cheer. Next time, let’s go paint-balling to balance things out ok?

  1. Thank you guys. It is definitely one of my favourite holiday memories now too. I’m so happy you could be part of it; I don’t think it would have been the same without you 🙂

  2. I had trouble thinking of a favourite holiday memory, I like to think I’m making new favourite memories all the time, and your party with friends both old and new is one of my favourite holiday memories this year for sure!
    Thanks so much for including me!

  3. Saturday is a memory that is quickly climbing the charts as a fav. To be surrounded by friends who you’ve chosen to make your family is the perfect way to spend every minute of the holidays that you can.

    Thank you so very much Reggy for the opportunity to be part of #ABCme.
