Christmas Spirit

Normally when we go home for Christmas it tends to be chaos. It is hard to give equal time to both sides of the family but this year it has been surprisingly easy. We always put more pressure on ourselves we don't want anyone to feel left out.

As I sat back yesterday reflecting on this year I realized just how amazingly lucky we are to have two families that love us so much. We may fight and have tough times throughout the year but the bottom line is we all love each other. Through blood and marriage I have an amazing family! We are also blessed with friends that have become family and they are so precious to us as well.

To all the amazing ladies I have met through blogging, thank you for an amazing year!

One huge piece that is missing is of course my Mom. We are planning to go down to her tree today and take some flowers. She was always the foundation of our holidays and we miss her so much. We know she is looking down on all of us and smiling. 

I may not get a chance to post tomorrow but I wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! However you are celebrating I hope it's an amazing time with those you love.
