I realize that's a bit of a ways away,
but if we don't make our plans early and stick to our guns, we end up in the battle of the "whose holiday is it?"
It's our holiday.
Last year was the first time I'd ever spent a holiday completely away from my family.
We went to the in-laws for Thanksgiving while the rest of my family went to Disney World. If you've read this post, you can probably guess how I felt about that. [you can peek here, here, here & here to see how things went last year.]
I said as we were driving away that it just wasn't fair for all of the fun to get completely sucked out of what's supposed to be a magical time.
So now, we're adults. Right?
We get to decide what we do with our time.
So we'll have our holidays here.
They will be quiet, I'm sure.
But I'm so excited for the opportunity to start some of our own little traditions.
I'm also STINKING excited to cook my first [real] Thanksgiving dinner!
What are some of your favorite things that make your holidays special?
Sweet, Mr. Husband,
All those Thanksgiving and Christmas I wished you could be there.
