The One with December Nights

Adam and I are celebrating our first Christmas as husband and wife. To say that I have dreamt of this day is an understatement. I would consider myself a pretty traditional person, so to be able to create new traditions with my husband that I hope to pass on to our future children and family is absolutely a treat for me.

After almost 10 years, I think it's safe to call myself a "San Diegan." I definitely relate more San Diego than I do L.A. life now. One of things that I wanted to incorporate into our newly-forming Christmas traditions was going to December Nights at Balboa Park. I've only been once before and really wanted to see more of it this year.

With a scarf, down vest, and jackets in preparation of a COOL San Diego night (y'know, below the 60s), Adam and I ventured out to brace ourselves for the huge crowds. It ended up be a really warm night and we just carried all our warm clothing the whole night.

Adam and I had a really lovely time. We realized that we aren't really "large crowds" kind of people since we're not naturally aggressive enough to push ourselves through the crowds. We enjoyed several of the museums and sharing some kettle corn though. We also had a great time perusing all the different foods at the International Cottages. We ended up splitting a sausage roll from the Czech & Slovakia booth. Super yummy.

All in all, it was a great start to one of our hopefully many Christmas traditions.

We even wore red and green to be more festive. How cute and cheesy are we?! :)

So cute, Jas! I went to December Nights the year that it rained the whole time!! We finally gave up on the umbrellas and just enjoyed being completely drenched. A night to remember, for sure!

Looks like so much fun! I wonder if there's anything like that in LA. I've been feeling extra Christmas-y this year and have been yearning for an outing with lights and hot cocoa!
