1. First up, Delicatessen with love, a series of photographs by Gabriele Galimberti that depicts grandmothers around the world alongside their delicious-looking cooking - because what would the holidays be without a home-cooked meal? (Thanks, My Modern Met.)
2. Secondly, John Schabel's beautiful and mysterious photographs of airline passengers awaiting takeoff, because so many of us will be - or already have been - there this month.
3. And lastly - because, well, it is a wonderful life - a slideshow of snapshots from the set of the classic film.
-Memorable memes. ("Texts From Hillary" is my favorite.)
-"Best Bathroom Books of 2012," according to the New York Times.
Thank you so much, lovely readers, for your support this year. As I've mentioned many times, it's been a hard one, but unexpectedly, it's also been one of the best of my life. I'm so happy and blessed to have been able to share it with you. Have a wonderful rest of the month, and I'll see you in 2013!
