What an amazing Christmas...

I can hardly sum it up in words. There was love, happiness, laughter, joy, generosity, excitement, and lots of surprises. I surrounded myself with family and enjoyed every moment with them, all of us together. We ate till we were full, we laughed until we cried, we smiled until our faces hurt. We gave gifts and shed happy tears over sentimental tokens. Never have I felt so complete, joyful and blessed. We played games till midnight, sipping on our vintage glasses of Malibu or wine, listening to the Christmas classics. We tricked each other into ending up under the mistletoe and ran around those hardwood floors like we were kids again. A perfect Christmas. I couldn't be more lucky.

Christmas Morning

Orange rolls and cinnamon coffee!

Bear waiting patiently for presents to be opened.

My Mom marked all our packages with old photos of
ourselves this year instead of normal tags. Awesome!
I displayed them all on my mantel.

Getting ready to head to my Aunt's house for Christmas Eve!

A sweet moment captured between the parents :)

I hope you all had wonderful holidays!
