It’s our first holiday in our new home, and with what little energy we have while finishing up the office, we’re starting to set those wonderful traditions for the life we’re building together. We just ordered matching Christmas stockings from Pottery Barn (www.potterybarn.com) using Joe’s Aunt Chris’s bridal shower gift card. We just bought a few new ornaments for our tree. We’re watching the holiday specials together. Our Christmas lights have arrived. Next weekend, we attend my family Christmas party, and we attend Joe’s office holiday party. And we’re going to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s holiday concert. We’re so lucky that we get to spend the holidays with both sides of our family, especially since my parents are feeling pretty well these days. We have a lovely holiday season ahead of us….a mix of old and new holiday traditions to blend our lives perfectly.
