Christmas Rope Lighting

This year we will celebrate our eighth Christmas season in Richmond, VA and I’m pleased to report that this is the year we’ve succumbed to holiday rope lighting. And I LOVE it! It may seem like a silly thing to get excited about, but I feel like those crazy, colorful, mismatched strings of lights are a signature to Richmond’s style and Richmond most definitely feels like home by now.

Another thing that may not be unique to Richmond but certainly is alive in well in this close-knit community, is holiday gifting. We received our first holiday treat this weekend from a neighbor. It was a delicious Gingerbread Stout Bread which paired amazingly with the salty caramel sauce I picked up at the Bizarre Bazaar with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I don’t know which recipe she used but below is a link to a recipe for a similar bread if you think you may want to give it a try for your holiday neighbor gifting.
