In a cruel turn of events, I was not able to celebrate Christmas this year because no one would let me, and I came down with plague. In my fragile condition, I halted all blogging and decided to do nothing but sleep, feel sorry for myself, and watch a British drama called Downton Abbey.
Still, I was able to celebrate Hanukkah, which unlike Christmas requires little production. Aaron and I pledged to stick to experience gifts this year, which you can read more about here.
I made Aaron a card for each night of Hanukkah which contained a description of his gift.
Ah to be a newlywed.
I got all cards at The Paper Source, which is a few blocks away in Cobble Hill and has a wonderful selection of reasonably priced paper goods.
I had some Sharpies on hand, and sat down and did a little decorating.
Done! And I bet you're wondering what those little winners contained. Well, I won't go into all the details, but I will say that his favorites were night one, which was a weekend trip for us to see the New Orleans Jazz Festival in April, and night eight, which was several weeks of Italian lessons. Bongiorno.
Aaron went one step further with the whole Zero Waste deal, and created AnnesHanukkah.com. A triumph of adorableness.
Anywhoo, I'm back in action, expect more posts soon!
