#1,101 The Holiday.
by Erin Napier
Every Christmas mama and I watch one or both of our favorites, Love Actually and The Holiday. Tonight it was the latter, and every time it’s like we’re seeing it for the first time.
I’ve taken great pleasure in doing the advent calendar each day of December my whole life.
We feel heartbroken when Iris finds out Jasper is engaged and we cry when Amanda sheds her first tear in 20 years, and tonight we danced at the end when it’s New Year’s Eve and Aretha Franklin sings You Send Me.
I love spending a night with just me and mama. Every daughter needs a mama night.
