Though our little Christmas exchange, lunch, and shopping were the reason for our get together, I don't think we could have chosen a more beautiful place to meet! The Mission's Christmas decor is beautiful and completely inspired me to spend the following day sprucing my own home for the holidays.
While we were there, one my fearless friends took us on an impromptu tour of the amazing chapel that sits tucked away upstairs in The Mission and is easy to miss.
As darkness fell we were treated not only to a visit with the big guy, but to the spectacular Festival of Lights that The Mission Inn is known for...
Celebrations like this, and outings with friends are one of my favorite ways to celebrate the holidays. Thanks to each of you for a perfect day!
