When we were kids, December 1st was always a BIG day because we got to open our chocolate advent calendar for the first time. There wasn't really anything that special about them (the chocolate was probably sub-par to my current fixation with nice dark chocolate), but to us, they were everything.
Imagine my surprise on Saturday when a box arrived at the front door from Neiman Marcus (SCORE!). My mom showed up just like she did when we were kids, this time with the most incredible grownup advent calendar. Leave it to Christian Lacroix to take advent to the next level.
This work of art will be so fun to open throughout the holiday season, and I know, unlike the chocolate ones, this will be around for a long time. Thanks mom!
