by far, this was the best christmas. mila’s first! she loved the tree and the ornaments; she even loved ripping open the paper on her presents.
since we got engaged, we’ve had to do a lot of gift registering. we thought that would be the fun, easy part. who doesn’t want to pick out gifts for other people to buy them?! we were so wrong. it was super difficult, because we just don’t know where we’re going to live after the chef graduates from medical school. it could be houston, it could be new york city; it could be a four bedroom house with a lots of storage or a one bedroom apartment with no kitchen cabinets. anyway, here are a few of our favorite registry items, that we know we can use wherever we end up – and if you have some extra christmas cash to spend, we think this would be the perfect way to spend it.
the tree is decorated, the presents are wrapped and cinnamon chip cookies are in the oven (i’ve eaten three batches this week already; i definitely need a post holiday diet).
