Last night was the annual celebration of the holidays at Balboa Park. It’s a tradition I hold deeply important: riding the train, enjoying the lights and music, buying mistletoe, free museums, cold night air, hot cider, bagpipes, the same gingerbread cookies they’ve sold since I was a child (full of gluten). I’ve got memories of Christmas on the Prado going back to my childhood and I cherish them.
There was lots we didn’t get to last night – we didn’t even make it to the International Cottages – but we had a blast. And now it feels as though the holidays can truly begin. Today we’ll decorate the tree and house and tonight we’ll complete this big opening weekend by enjoying the parade right outside our apartment complex (oh how I love living in downtown CV) with hot chocolate and maybe even gingerbread cookies.

And I’ll be back later with a post of my favorite places to shop online so don’t shop yet, ok?
