Christmas came and went, and it does so so fast, doesn't it? I hope everyone who celebrates did enjoy every moment of it and had a lovely time with friends or family... or on their own!

I had the most excellent weekend myself and came back with lovely new memories (there was so much baby holding time omg ♥). Also a stomach filled to full capacity and some lovely presents ;)

We've always been a family in love with Christmas (my sister, cousins and I are fortunate enough to have wonderful memories of our childhood Christmases) and we've always enjoyed celebrating it even after we lost the last of our grandparents and before Chiara was born (the eldest of my nieces and nephews) but, admittedly, ever since the kids came to our lives, we've had so much fun teaching them the traditions we grew up with... and so much fun re-creating the magic surrounding this time of the year. With five young children with us now (well, Nolan and Eloïse are obviously too little to even know there's something happening but you know what I mean) we're having the time of our life ;)

Which, look what one of my cousins found for the assorted nieces and nephews. They had a blast opening them and finding what presents le Père Noël had put inside:



Aren't those bags the cutest? We were pretty jealous and are thinking of asking the same for the adult members of the family lol

Anyway. I had a lot of fun, is what I'm saying. And could fast for the remaining of the week, really ;)

I meant to post this last night but I was so mellow and chill that this was almost too much effort for me lol I could only snuggle on the couch and watch the Sense8 Christmas special. Again. Oh, I enjoyed that episode so much! Two minutes hadn't passed that I was already smitten. And I basically never stopped. So many awesome, moving, hotter than hot, beautiful, sweet, funny moments in one single episode! Sense8 is one of the best shows to have ever graced our digital screens, imho. It is such an ode to human connection, to love and friendship, to resilience, to kindness, strength, tolerance, it's such a beautiful exemple of diversity and representation. The action scenes are all kinds of awesome, the plot is pretty cool and original. As for the sex scenes, you guys? There are no words to express how gorgeous (and hot) they are. No words ♥

Netflix does have some brilliant original series. Next in line, The OA, which sounds extremely intriguing.

Adding young kids into the mix again really revitalized my family too.

Cute bags, yes!
