It's Christmas Eve, and for the first time in years it's just "us" at home. No parents, no grandparents... It's quiet and calm. I'm not stressed, we're free to hang around in our pj's all day, and there is nowhere we have to be. It's a very refreshing feeling, indeed! :) Normally we have lots to contend with... various family celebrations, visits to and from friends, and never enough time just to ourselves.
We decided to do things a little differently this year, for a very special reason. This is our little angel's very first Christmas! We wanted it to be special- not necessarily for her, since she won't remember it- but for us. We are so proud of our little girl, and since she was born we've really enjoyed being a "family" instead of just a couple. It's a truly magical time for us!
So here's to being thankful we have something so special to celebrate this year, as well as being thankful for all of the blessings in our lives that give us a reason to smile. :)
I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season and are thankful for your blessings, no matter how big or small! :)
