a very merry {married} christmas eve.

Merry Christmas Eve to you all! I hope you are having a splendidly wonderful day, wherever you may be. This time of year is my absolute favorite; surrounded by those you hold close, mistletoe, home-baked cookies, beautiful decorations and colorful chistmas trees. I just can’t get enough of Christmas this year! 

This will be mine and C’s first official “married” Christmas together and we couldn’t be more excited! Today we’ll be hanging at my mom’s house with all of her side of the family and some of our close family friends. This is one of my favorite family traditions. I can’t think of how many years it’s been now that I have spent Christmas Eve with my amazingly {huge} family and I love it even more each year! 

Tomorrow, C and I have a perfect Christmas Day planned; we plan on sleeping in, opening gifts with each other in our pajamas, making a {ginormous} Christmas breakfast, and then lounging for the rest of the day. We’ll most likely watch {many} movies, bake delicious snacks, and nap before heading over to my “other parent’s” house for an delicious crab feed dinner! Holy wow - I can’t wait to just eat my heart out! 

Below are a few glances into what our past week has looked like around here. There’s been lots of frosty cold mornings, snuggles, napping, baking, forgotten fall leaves, and Christmas decorating. We’re absolutely in love with this time of year.

I hope you all have the most amazing Christmas. May it bring you all of the joy, peace, and happiness one could ever need. Happy Christmas!
