Christmas Cranberry Braid
with so many in our family spread across the country, we don't often have bits and pieces of eachother to carry with us on our adventures. but this christmas, santa brought pieces of my great grandmothers wedding china wrapped in faded tissue, and we spent the afternoon slowly unwrapping each one, telling stories of travel and family and delicious feasts. Inspired by the gorgeous tablescapes of @skye_mcalpine , we snacked on slices of cranberry bread on those beautiful plates, remembering great grandma Lucille's delicious life.

how do you see them, she asked. you just close your eyes, and the angels appear, he reminded. #romanadventure
