i have gone to my grandparents house every xmas eve of my entire life. there is a certain smell in their house, like cedar and sugar. it has to be one of the best scents in the entire world, unique only to them. twenty years ago my grandma loaned me a sweatshirt and inside of the pocket was one of her handkerchiefs. i brought it to my nose and inhaled deeply, the scent of comfort and love. i still have that handkerchief and i put it in a little sealed bag. the scent is faint but still present and i cherish it.
drew and i have been able to spend the last fifteen christmas eves together and we hope you all are able to celebrate this Yuletide holiday season with those you love.
