I missed wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.. but maybe Happy Black Friday will do? Both of these were very happy for me! I’ve had a lot of friends and family around the past couple of days and it’s really been a blessing! Thanksgiving was spent in the usual way a couple hours south with Nate’s family, and Black Friday was spent lounging and cleaning in the early part of the day and then we headed over to Nate’s Parent’s house for Christmas ornament decorating and a yummy dinner. Can’t think of anything better.
My house is completely decorated for Christmas, and I love it. It just feels warm and happy. I need to take an updated picture of the tree as I’ve added a lot to it since the last one! It’s really starting to feel like Christmas now- especially after getting a little bit of snow last night. =) I can’t wait to have my Parent’s in town for a few weeks for Christmas! They haven’t seen our house yet and I can’t wait! I’m hoping I can take a trip home sometime in the beginning of the year, too. After Christmas it will have been over a year since I last went home and that just feels crazy.
It’s weird the way life changes. So much has happened over the course of the last 5 years and so much just over this last year! Now that we’re coming to the end of it I feel like I need to reflect. I’m sure I will post a blog just in dedication to that, very soon! And also, the year in pictures! Those are always fun. =)
