From Where We Stand: Holiday Edition

December 31, 2015

We're coming to you from faraway places: Barns in upstate New York, Reno, Tennessee—even halfway across the globe (see below for evidence). Here's how the world looks from where we stand (dispersed for the holidays) this past week.

Wrapping presents just got a whole lot sweeter. #threeshadesofgrey #f52tencommandments #f52life

Sam celebrated Christmas Eve in style at Bemelmans.

Amanda Sims roasted chestnuts for the first time. New tradition?

So Kenzi tried, too. Hers were only okay, but she's not giving up.
