Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night

by heatherkp

Christmas is almost over but I didn’t want to let it go without a Merry Christmas wish for everyone!

It’s been quite a year and for the first time in over 5 years my husband and I spent the holiday alone.  We slept in, talked to family on the phone (and via skype), had a nice relaxed breakfast and opened a few small gifts.  My favorite gift came from my brother and sister in law, an edited video of our wedding seven years ago!  I loved watching it while finishing up dinner preparations.  We also took a walk on the beach and discovered an extremely low tide, we got so caught up exploring that we left the turkey in the oven an hour longer than planned, no worries though it came out perfect!  We miss our family and friends who we are so grateful for but we’ve had a lovely quiet Christmas together this year.

What did you do for Christmas?  Was it a big celebration or a quiet and intimate one?
