December is such a busy & wild month with so many holiday festivities! December 5th was our official LAST DAY at our apartment and moving during the holiday season is no joke! Christmas shopping, mailing out cards, holiday parties, traveling, visiting with family, wrapping presents, fancy dinners, baking, watching movies, decorating… that’s the good stuff that makes the holidays special and trying to incorporate all of the Christmas festivities while MOVING was chaotic to say the least! I’m happy to have completed the semester and push through to make the holidays special even while working full time & living out of boxes! This was the 1st Christmas of my entire life without my Grandmother here on earth with us & being pregnant, so those were 2 big adjustments for 2023. I love my family and spending time together during the holidays is so special to me 🙂 Merry Christmas everyone!
Work is constantly a stressful & busy environment… Shoutout to our great coworkers who work to bring joy into the week with holiday parties & Secret Santa events! It’s the little things that can make such a big difference & lunch potlucks definitely give you something to look forward to!
After celebrating Christmas with our family, we got back to the triangle to pick up Lucy’s SOULMATE Ollie! Our best friend Christina went out of town for the holidays, so that allowed us extra time to hang out with our other bestie Ollie the golden retriever! Ollie is our 1st official overnight house guest & Lucy’s 1st ever sleepover friend! He even brought her a Christmas gift?! Oh my gosh! Moving away from Ollie & Christina has been the saddest thing, but we are making sure to hang out as much as possible! Lucy & Ollie have been besties since the very start –it is the most precious thing to see how happy they are together, it was a Christmas gift for Dillon & I to get them together! We can’t wait until next time! 🙂
