The holidays are over (sigh). I had a great time in Houston (like always) visiting my boyfriends parents. Days later, it all seems like a dream filled with veggie tamales, toddlers, mulled wine and vintage stores.  Here's a photo recap of some of my favorite parts. 

 What's becoming an annual tradition, waiting in line at Alamo Tamale and Taco Xmas Eve for handmade vegetarian and meat tamales.
