Christmas is a time of year I think nearly everyone enjoys, but as you become an adult it tends to lose a bit of the magic it had when you were a kid. I wanted to give some of that magic back to my husband so I created an advent calendar tailored specifically for him. If you would like to make one I posted a tutorial on how I made mine here. If you are curious about the origins of the advent calendar there is a nice little history here.
December 7: Advent Day Seven
So today is day one of our three day rotation which means it is time for candy or a food item. Instead of a food item I could stick in a bag, though, I thought it would be fun to go out to lunch. Today is Albuquerque's Shop & Stroll which is when Central Street is closed down and all the shops and restaurants have special deals. It's like Black Friday except less hectic, more Holiday focused, and all about supporting local businesses. We will be going soon, which is good because we are getting hungry!
