Happy two days after Christmas! We truly had a wonderful holiday this year, much more relaxed than any other year and it was just delightful. Nick and I spent much more time in our own home and still got to see our families. It was perfect. We finally got a record player and have been enjoying the heck out of sitting in our family room with books and warm drinks while records spin.
We also talked a lot about gift giving (and receiving) this year and really want to start cutting back in the years to come. Next Christmas our daughter will be 10 months old and we do not want Christmases for her to be about getting gifts, nor do we want it to be that way for us. We do not need more "stuff" and while it's always fun to receive gifts, the holiday spirit gets lost when we become so consumed with giving and receiving gifts. Does anyone else feel this way? Hoping the holidays were wonderful for you too!
