This was the second year our family was invited to Christmas lunch at the De Schutters’s home. Just like last year Ayu, the hostess, surprised us by creating something really special. This year she prepared Spanish dishes and served a refreshing sangria (unfortunately that was finished before I took these photos). The day was so special as friends have become “family” over the years and we all really enjoy celebrating together. Aren’t the holidays the best time for sharing with your nearest and dearest? Merry Christmas everyone.
