My favorite things of Christmas

I'm starting to get into the holiday spirit here in Virginia. This past weekend we went in search of our 1st family Christmas tree. Andy reminds me so much of his father, and my father for that matter, with his patience (or lack of) in putting it up. I can chuckle at it now, a small inside joke to share with him...

I want to share my favorite things of Christmas with you. I hope to add a new favorite thing every couple of days or so!

So, my first favorite thing is unwrapping the ornaments for the tree and touching on the memories I've shared with Andy. Every year since we've been married, we have been in a different state for Christmas with the exception of this year. I love finding ornaments that remind me of the home we made for that short year. This ornament I was gifted while we were in Texas, and it quickly became one of my favorites. There are so many fond memories that come with it...Tex-Mex cuisine, trips to San Antonio, touring through the Texas wine country, good friends, good margaritas, and a small town I couldn't wait to move away from...


  1. That post made me tear up just a bit... what a beautiful life we live thanks to these crazy boys!

  2. Great idea! Christmas is all about memories for me. I love this time of year .
