“Up until a few years ago my family would do the usual gifts under the Christmas tree. Now every year instead of getting gifts, we go on a trip with our family, to places like San Francisco, Florida and this year Europe! We decided that we are so busy that we don’t save time for our family to bond anymore, so now instead of getting a new phone case or new books, we get a new adventure. So I think my favorite gift I have ever received is the opportunity to have a few weeks to value the meaningful things in life, not the materialistic.”
