Twelve Dates of Christmas 2014: Date 1

Tubas and chocolate and lights! That's how we kicked off our Christmas dates this year, and I am telling you, if a tuba doesn't get you in the mood, for something at least, I just don't know what's wrong with you. (nothing is wrong with you though. I like you).

We made ourselves a little Christmas Crawl. First the Faneuil Hall tuba concert, where we froze our toes, then the ghiradelli store and restaurant for hot chocolate and treats. Once we thawed out we did some shopping and strolling, before settling in to see the Blink! light and music show. A festive and fun afternoon!

Miller + Salazar Party Co.-Pumpkin Carving

My favorite party co-host is Emerald. The girl is A+ awesome and tons of fun. We threw a little pumpkin carving shindig a few days before Halloween and had a blast. The place was packed and it was hilarious when it got so loud with everyone laughing and talking. It was great to look around and see friends relax and have a good time. It's one of my favorite sites to see :)


+Rosie and Jake which I didn't catch, and Emerald, Josh and Blake. How did I not get a family shot of you guys?!

The days before it becomes Christmas time

Ready for more Fall fun? Because we did indeed squeeze in some more fun this Fall.

 I died, went to heaven, and then came back over this view.  Brisk bike rides are the best.

 Job voted as a U.S. Citizen for the first time!!

 We took a really interesting meditation class at the Cambridge Zen center. It is a way of life and a religion for most of the people there, which was very unique. We came away with some new techniques to incorporate into our own life. I think it that's something so great about having people who are very different around us; we can learn from others and take what works for us and adapt to our own needs and lifestyles. Does that make sense? I just think that we as human beings have more in common than not. And as we share our beliefs and traditions we can grow closer as community members.

 Library date just because

 Secret rooftop garden date.
 With some Clover Food Lab eats thrown in.

 It's a birthday! Happy day Sebastian. We are so glad we know you and Michelle.

 I found a traveling book! Good luck will come to me all year (or something like that).

^^^I step outside and what do I see? ^^^

 Friday morning breakfasts in bed.

 Days so busy all we could do what grab pizza and eat dinner while waiting for the bus. These are good days :)

A Halloween get together complete with a full dinner and desserts for days. Because that's how our pals do it. Also, I have gorgeous friends. I mean, seriously, just look at those women up there.

 Opening of the newly renovated Harvard Art Museums.

Night city walk to a girls night with co-workers.

 Job left for a business trip to Mexico
And then came back to me, hurray!

I took 0 pictures from Thanksgiving, but it was a nice day. Job was still gone to Mexico, so I worked from 6a-4p. Then he flew back into town and we headed to a fellow musician's home in Brookline for a delicious dinner. They were so welcoming and kind, we really enjoyed spending time with their family. Plus, when you have dinner at the home of fantastic musicians, you get a show after dinner. Bonus!

Thank you Fall for being so fabulous. Thank you friends for helping make it so. Thank you Job for being the life of my party every day.

In which we have a delayed Halloween

Once upon a time, Job was traveling during Halloween so we didn't get to wear our costumes. But then he was a suuuuper good sport and we put them on a danced around a bit when he got back. Because we got our tight pants, we got our tight pants on.
