New boxing day tradition

Processed with VSCOcam with acg preset
On boxing day, instead of hitting the stores as I’ve always do every year, my family and I bundled up and went to the beach for a walk. We brought along some hot chocolate and had a very memorable time. We’re making this a new tradition!
