********Summer********
Half a month
Two weeks
14 Days
a long coastal holiday. one of the bests so far.

it began one Christmas Eve.
it started in Onrus and then Rach and I headed to Mossel Bay, but every Christmas holiday starts with a Christmas story. So let's start there

Christmas table, Christmas dinner

mom's trifle. dad's last drop of whiskey and cape velvet.
