This was Christmas Eve last year. The girls were already in bed, Jon and I were sitting on the floor thinking about the past year and how thankful we are for each other, our girls, family and friends. Talking about what the new year would hold. The tree and it's lights were magical.
For the past several years we leave the day after Christmas and we are gone for a week. Last year we went to Monterey Bay and stayed at the family beach house. We walked the pier, went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We just hung out as a family, having soup, making blankets and watching movies. This time of year is restful and reflective.
Hope you have a great first part of the week!
