This is the best Christmas I think I've had since I was a kid. As a newlywed, my husband and I are just beginning to realize what we want our family to do each year in celebration of the holidays. We don't have children yet, but we still are a family, just the two of us. At this time last year, we were in the process of moving out, but still living with roommates in a large two-story house. Now that we have our own little condo, we feel at home and have really enjoyed putting up some decorations (mostly borrowed from our parents). It's also my first time ever having a real tree! That has been my favorite part - there's nothing like the smell of a pine tree!
So, we are still working on coming up with our own family traditions. I'm sure once we have children, things will fall into place. One thing we have been doing a lot this month is going to our favorite restaurants and wineries to enjoy good food and even better wine. We also always see a movie on Christmas day! We've been doing that as a couple for about five years now.
Here are some of our decorations. Nothing too elaborate, but we are both very happy and proud of our little home :)
This time of year is always about being grateful, and appreciating all that you have. I forget to do that in the hustle and bustle of daily life. People let me down, I get complacent. It's easy to do. But I am so thankful for the people in my life that I can truly count on, the ones I know will love me no matter what. That's what Christmas means to me. I hope you all have a wonderful beginning to your week!

I will be back on Thursday with another outfit post :)
As always, thank you for reading!
Oh and by the way, my blog is in the process of getting a fresh new look so that's why things may look a bit off for the next few days...
