OK, OK. So, maybe it isn’t a true “Christmas Break” but being able to work from home for a few days is definitely a plus. (Getting the laundry finished while you work is an amazing feeling!)
We celebrated our first (husband + wife) Christmas this year. It was spent with his family which meant no traveling. Fine by me! We relaxed, had great food with great company and took care of a friend’s cat too.
Here are the highlights:

We traveled to see my family for Thanksgiving, so we’ll probably just switch off next year. It was a fantastic weekend and a testament to how blessed we truly are.
