My fiance calls it “cruise director” mode. This is when he researches entertainment options and organizes activities for us to enjoy. He’s excellent at it, but frankly he is something of a home body and would be very happy staying in most of the time.
I’m pretty much a home body too. That’s why it’s especially nice that he is so great at switching into cruise director mode. I fear we wouldn’t ever go out if he didn’t. Home is nice. Home is comfortable. But there is so much to experience just by getting out there!
This holiday season he has outdone himself. On Thursday we enjoyed a fantastic Christmas jazz concert as a family. Then on Friday the two of us toured the Chihuly exhibit at our Botanical Garden as part of La Noche de las Luminarias. There were musicians throughout the venue sharing several types of music, from Native American flute to traditional Christmas Carols to Irish folk music. It was a fantastic evening. Then last night we attended a small theater production of A Christmas Carol. It was in a great little venue I had never visited before, and the performance was wonderful. The front row seats were nice, too.
I loved all the activities and I feel special and incredibly spoiled. Now I’m ready to hang out at home for a few days and watch Christmas movies and bake cookies. Yes, I know. I shouldn’t. But I am. Merry Christmas to me, and Merry Christmas to you too.

Thanks, but they don’t do the art justice. If you ever have a chance to go to one of these garden installations go!

Hubby and I are home bodies too. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas! 🙂

We love being at home so sometimes it takes a little extra shove to go do these fun things, but I always am glad when we do. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours also. 🙂

Good thing there’s internet. Not as good as live, but better than nothing! 🙂

I actually couldn’t tell what the exhibition was – they are plants? Wow.

Actually they are art glass installations in the botanical gardens. They are quite something to experience in person.
