The gifts are given, opened, and enjoyed. The anticipation builds and builds and soon your in your bed, wrapped in a fleece blanket, and thanking the Lord for an opportunity to sleep. I hope your holiday was both joyful and exhausting. That seems to be my combination of feelings every year!

Darrin and I traveled back home early on Christmas morning. We spent 6 hours jamming to a specially made Christmas playlist {crafted by the best redhead in town} while trying to make sure we didn’t hit a patch of ice and send our car into the snow bank. Waking up early on Christmas morning in order to hop in our car and drive through a mini-snowstorm didn’t seem very “festive”…so we found a picture of a Christmas tree on Darrin’s phone and kept that up as a little “Christmas car decor” while we drove through corn field after corn field. I like to think that our little cyber tree inspired us to drive efficiently and make it back successfully in time for my side’s Christmas party. Thanks, virtual tree.

I hope you find some time to relax today! Can’t wait to share pictures of our holiday adventure next week! icon smile The Day After

Have a happy Thursday!

    My Christmas was definitely exciting and extremely exhausting! I hate when Christmas is over, but I’m also glad that all of the stress that comes with it is over! So glad you guys managed not to end in a snow bank & that you had a piece of Christmas with you on your travels ;)
