Merry Christmas from the Kofoeds

We are in Salt Lake City.  An apple crisp is in the oven.  Danny is cozy and napping on his mother's couch, since we went to a fondue party last night that began at 11 pm.  12 nieces and nephews are due here in a few hours.  It smells and feels like Christmas. 

The night before we left NY, we stayed the night with our dear friends who just moved to New Jersey.  We burned the midnight oil and laughed and made the most delicious caramels before Danny & I climbed up to their charming attic for a few hours of sleep.  Didn't matter that we all weren't in Brooklyn, like normal.  It still felt like being home, simply because we were all together. 

May you all be surrounded by ones you love during the holidays.  And may we all do our part to get over our pride or fears and reach out to others with even more love & gratitude.  I'll be working on that, too.  

I leave you with a few photos from our Progressive Dinner in Brooklyn (Danny spoiled all 16 of us with filet mignon!)

Lots of posts coming for you all in 2012!  We'll be writing away.  Can't wait to continue this wonderful experience of having a blog and continuing the conversations on marriage, happiness, love, & how to face our trials and be the best we can be.  We hope that 2012 will be the best ever for each & every one of us.  Let's make it happen. 

Sending you warm wishes,

Mara & Danny

    I especially like this line: "May we all do our part to get over our pride or fears and reach out to others with even more love & gratitude." I'm constantly working on that :)
