I’m so backlogged on posts! Our December was fun filled and absolutely lovely. We spent Christmas day just us for the day, and then had friends over for dinner and drinks. It was so relaxing and mellow. I took some much needed vacation time and soaked up time with my boys.
My parents came to stay with us for a week, starting right after Christmas and they leave this Saturday. So many projects were done around the house that I will post later. We went to see Christmas lights at the zoo and the air museum, and ate way too much food.
We had a wonderful time and my heart (and stomach) is full! I hope all who celebrate had a great Christmas with your loved ones!
Ok, I’m way behind once again. But here is my long overdue Christmas house tour. It’s not New Years at least!
The living room is my favorite room of the house. It just looks so cozy with all the Christmas decor. After taking this photo, I talked Match into getting another sitting chair. I love the way it rounds the room out, and allows me to sit and look out at my beautiful view of trees. I feel so incredibly lucky to be in this new home.
Our Bend trip was awesome! Last year there was just the tiniest dusting of snow. This year was a winter wonderland! I love the snow so much!
We had a great time with Match’s family. It was the perfect balance of family time and having our own space at the resort. We loved getting quality time with our sweet niece. She’s 2, and it is such a fun age! I love her sweet little voice, and how enamored she is with Piglet.
My favorite part of the trip was the hike Match, Piglet and I went on at the resort on the last day. Just look at that amazing view!
I could definitely see myself living somewhere where it snows more often. It’s so beautiful, and I love the stillness and quiet that comes with the snow. I’m sure I’d hate the daily grind of it, but it sure it gorgeous to come visit. Until next time, Bend!
We are currently in route to Bend for Thanksgiving. We are meeting Match’s parents and his sister and her little family. I am so, so excited!
We once again got a condo at our favorite resort, where we get to hot tub and swim in the snow.
Match and I were reminiscing about our first Thanksgiving together. It was 11 years ago! We had been together 5 months, and we were in the full blown honeymoon stage. I blogged about feeling like a part of the family, and daydreaming about marrying Match. Now here we are, a family.
There is so much to be thankful for. This year we started the tradition of writing what we are grateful for on a pumpkin. We had fun coming up with all sorts of things, both silly and serious.
I’m also grateful for this blog, which allows me to look back at my relationship with Match and remind me of how lucky I am to have found him. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
