This year marks the first Christmas that either Bowl #2 or I will spend away from our parents. But it also marks the first Christmas we’ll spend together. So it’s a little bit of sad, but also a lot of happy. (Like the fact that we stayed up late last night playing cards and eating chips and ice cream.
Instead of going to midnight mass. And celebrating Jesus’s birthday at home.)
This is the first Christmas, too, that I’ll be sharing with you all through this blog! I don’t know if I’ve ever stopped to say this, but this blog brings to life dreams and passions I didn’t know I had even six months ago — it’s given me an outlet for so much that brings me joy. And obviously that wouldn’t have been possible, at all, ever, without you. So, for all that you do, thank you so very much. It means the world to me. And for those celebrating, I hope you’re all having perfect Christmases.
