I know that it's been a few weeks since Christmas, but I think it is important to recognize the traditions we kept and left behind this past year. It's time to consider what we want our traditions to be in years to come. Michael and I take family traditions pretty seriously and are excited to build more of own. We've been fortunate to get started together over the past few years.
We spend an evening at the orchestra, getting in the holiday spirit.
We make gingerbread cookies at my parents' house on Christmas Eve.
We go to Christmas Eve Mass and try to find a balance of time between our families' festivities.
We pick our REAL Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. In the city, that means we grab a pre-cut tree at the hardware store. But we decorate with ornaments from our families.
We donate to the Christmas giving tree at our church.
…it was a horse.
