The best gift of all…

December 25, 2009

Merit to the Carrot now has its own domain, complements of my older brother, Eric. (not!!) I am so so thrilled.

I hope you all had yourselves a Merry little Christmas, letting go of everything that truly doesn’t matter, and appreciating everything that does. I hope that your day was filled with family, fun, & laughter… food, too. You all deserve a heart-warming day to soak up the spirit of the season.

I awoke this Christmas morn with the high anticipation of consuming a warm bowl of oats while exchanging gifts. I put the final touch of a peanut butter drizzle on my festive breakfast…

….then I turned to grab a spoon when the Grinch got to my bow-el of noel…

…or maybe it was me, but I can’t quite remember… 🙂

Regardless, twas a fantastic morning.

My family knows me too well: Eat, Drink & Be Vegan cookbook, Justin’s PB & AB squeeze packets, Whole Foods gift card, Pirate Radio soundtrack, The Simpsons Season 12, Burt’s Bees Facial Cleanser, an array of Larabars, and an unpictured Food Processor by the name of Margene.

I equally enjoyed beating my brother in Wii Boxing & Tennis.

What was the highlight of your day?

    When I first saw the bow on your bowl of oatmeal I thought you were giving it to someone as a present. It would have made a really good gift since it looked so tasty and purty! I guess technically it still was a present…. for your stomach 😉
    I’m glad you had a fun Christmas and am loving the name Margene! I name all my stuff, it’s kind of ridiculous. I just got the “Pirate Radio” CD off itunes… It’s really good!
