hello again, my dears 🙂 I’m back from my short recess from blogging over the Christmas week to pop in and say hi!
before I jump into the goodies I have prepared for the new year (uhh… what? 2015? who gave you permission to sneak up so fast?), I thought I’d give you a little peek into what Christmas has been like for J and I… our first Christmas married, may I add!
we kicked off with a super cozy Christmas Eve (read all about my cuddly plans here!) before launching into Christmas Day full-swing… stockings and presents for the two of us in our sweet little apartment, a quick two-and-a-half-hour jaunt to Maryland, where stockings and presents were opened and enjoyed at his family’s house before doing the same with my family. Then Christmas night with the great avrick clan at his granny’s place- complete with tasty dinner, uproarious games, grab bag, and an ugly ornament contest! we stayed an extra day and a half to carry on the avrick celebration with video games, coffee dates, and a great big dinner! saturday morning we returned to lancaster (my family in tow!) to enjoy a weekend of ice-cream-making, mall-shopping, tour-taking, and theatre-attending, finished off with a fine lunch.
WHAT A LOVELY CHRISTMAS.
