Christmas Recap

This holiday season only made me realize even more how truly blessed I am. I have a wonderful life, and while it isn't perfect, it's my life and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Going home for the holidays is always special, and I loved every minute I got to spend with my parents, my brothers and their wives, my nephews, and the pets (can't forget the pets!). I didn't have a camera with me so all of my pictures were taken with my iPhone.

Mom's Christmas tree - Red, White, and Blue Theme

The newest addition to the family - Phydeaux

My BEST friends!

There is a funny story that goes along with one of my Christmas presents. My mom knows how much I love Lilly Pulitzer, and one day, she was shopping at Barnes & Noble. She was shocked to see a LP product there, and bought it without realizing what it was. When she got home, she realized that it was a Nook cover, and I would need an actual Nook in order to get any use from it at all! So she went back and bought the Nook, haha! A little reverse shopping, but I'm happy!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this Nook cover!

And the Nook!

Our Christmas dinner!

So exciting to see snow on Christmas!
My nephew built a mini-snowman so I had to
put the gingerbread house next to it...cute!

A White Christmas in Georgia!

I'm now back in Los Angeles, and am feeling a little depressed that Christmas is over! The only thing that made it better was picking up C from the airport...it was a long 12 days without him!

Tonight, we're going to get massages and then probably go out to dinner before opening our presents to each other. Actually, he has to wait for his since I didn't have the space in my suitcase to bring them with me. They'll be here next Tuesday. But....I get my presents!!! :)

I’m so glad you were able to get home and spend Christmas with your family. That’s awesome that you got a Nook and cute LP cover to go along with it. I love how the cover came before the device ;)

The miniature snowman is too cute next to the gingerbread house.

Enjoy your massage and I hope you and C have a great time catching up over the New Year. XOXO
