A Very She & Him Christmas
On Christmas day the brothers drove down to Temecula to take part in our second annual Christmas morning breakfast. In a world where everyone wants to have Christmas dinner, the best way to see everyone in one day is to convince one side of the family to have breakfast instead! We really enjoyed ourselves. One of my favorite parts was that Ryan cold brewed a jar of holiday blend coffee from Starbucks for everyones enjoyment.
Then Ryan surprised everyone by bringing our record player and the She & Him Christmas vinyl. This was a really cool moment and everyone really enjoyed it. Later I pulled out my guitar and played a few songs for the family (One of two sets I would do that day).
We finished the night by driving back down to Orange County to enjoy some finger foods and games with my moms side again. Ryan pulled out the record player and we put She & Him on again. That moment when your Grandpa says "I really like this record" and starts telling you about his collection back in the day, is the same moment you realize why you started collecting vinyls in the first place. It's something special, it's something tangible, & it allows you to share great memories with the ones you love. I pulled out my guitar and performed my second set of the day.
All and all it was a great day!
