For me, there are two sacred days in every year: my birthday and Christmas. I turn into a male version of Bree van de Kamp and I try to control every single detail on those days, from food to schedules, from presents to coasters on the table. I get super stressed but it's completely worth it. I've been spending Christmas in Sacramento for two years in a row now and no matter how imperfect or crazy things get, the one thing that always keeps me focused and happy is the fact that I get to spend this time with my family and loved ones.

My favourite part of Christmas definitely has to be hanging with my mom and cooking with her: we took control over dinner this year and made it a bit more special (usually it's the new family who takes charge). The holidays are a great time to bond with family and loved ones and to remember who's an important part of your life and why. When it's all cold outside, the warmth has to come from our hearts. Wow, that was really cheesy, huh?

Now the next year is about to begin with a bunch of new opportunities and things to do... And maybe the thing that I'm trying to say or what I want everyone to remember is that creating a home is important and when it's cold outside (metaphorically, of course), it's good to have a nice warm place (or people) you can go to, a place where you feel safe, just like Sacramento has become a home away from home to me now...

// Hay dos días sagrados cada año en mi vida: mi cumpleaños y Navidad. En esos días, me convierto en una versión hombre de Bree van de Kamp y trato de controlar hasta el más mínimo detalle, desde la comida hasta los horarios, de los regalos a los porta-vasos. Me estrello muchísimo pero vale la pena. He estado pasando Navidad en Sacramento por dos años seguidos y no importa qué tan imperfectas o locas se pongan las cosas, lo que siempre me mantiene centrado y feliz es el hecho de que puedo pasar estos momentos con mi familia y seres queridos. 

Mi parte favorita de Navidad definitivamente tiene que ser convivir con mi mamá y cocinar con ella; tomamos el control de la cena este año y la hicimos un poco más especial (porque usualmente su nueva familia se encarga de todo). Las fiestas determinas son un gran momento para crear lazos con tu familia y seres queridos y recordar quién es una parte importante de tu vida y por qué. Cuando está frío afuera, el calor debe provenir de nuestros corazones. Wow, fui muy cursi ¿verdad?

Ahora el siguiente año está por comenzar, con muchas oportunidades nuevas y cosas por hacer... Y quizá lo que intento decir o lo que quiero que todo mundo recuerde es que crear un hogar es importante y que cuando hace frío en el mundo (metafóricamente, claro), es bueno tener un lugar cálido (o persona) a donde recurrir, un lugar que te haga sentir seguro, justo como Sacramento se ha vuelto un hogar lejos de mi hogar ahora...
