We’re having our first Christmas in our country house and I just can’t wait. The weather turned it on last time we were up there, and you have never seen anyone wanting to return to Auckland less than we did. And we like Auckland! But the country is just so magical in the summer. Hayden spent most of the weekend getting the house ready for summer – outdoor furniture out, etc. – and we had friends over for a delicious picky snack dinner and some bubbles in the evening. Oh, and we also decorated for Christmas! SO EXCITING. I love Christmas time!
