Christmas has always been one of my favorite times of the year. As much as I hate IL winters, snow, and cold weather, there is something cozy and refreshing about being inside and watching said weather catastrophes while curled up under a blanket reading, watching TV, or drinking hot chocolate.
This is why I've decided to join the link up over at Sowdering About In Seattle, my good friend's blog.
I will be the first to admit, I'm a slacker in the blog world. I used to be way better about it, but I definitely haven't been working up to my potential. But I figure the holidays are when I have the most to talk about. Also I'm hosting a party or two, and making cookies. So I plan on sharing all of this with you.
I'm fairly certain this year I am going to completely overcompensate everything. This will be the first Christmas without my father. I'm not entirely sure how to handle it. Not only that, but it's my beautiful daughters first Christmas, so I have to make it good no matter what I'm feeling.
So feel free to join on our holiday journey!!!
Kudos to our amazing photographer Kara for our fantastic holiday pictures which I love.
I leave you with our first bit of Christmas:
