Holiday means celebrating the best parts of love and joy.
Home takes on a different meaning as I’m in Asia away from my usual friends and family but it will be just as special.
In Hong Kong, everything is so close that I can wake up and text a friend, then in the next hour we are scouring the streets for baked bean goods and fruits while dodging air conditioning mucus.
Don’t worry, for these excursions I do the Woke Up Like This look but nix the basketball shorts/sweats/stereotypical crap. Think Donna Karan runway bedhead from two seasons ago–that’s Grace representing North American culture.
I have a hunch that holiday culture in Asia is radically different, but of course it’s up to each of us to create our own holiday seasons with people we enjoy.
