Christmas in the desert

Our friend made a Christmas ornament for each of us that she filled with rocks, sand and dried plants that she picked on a hike so that we would remember this Christmas forever. It was the sweetest gift.

He decorated the bus while they slept. There were Legos, crepes, homemade quiches and cinnamon buns eaten outside with friends. There were shared traditions and shared stories. A hike, some rain and an owl that answered back.
