    The Holiday Season Recap

    I hope everyone had the BEST time celebrating this holiday season! I was wholeheartedly going to post about all the Christmas festivities that Nathan and I did this year individually….but clearly that did not happen. So, I am just going to cram it into one post and try not to bore the hell out of everyone! We are usually in Disney in December so it was a nice change to be able to do some PNW firsts!

    Best Time of the Year

    CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!! IT’S HERE!! I can finally listen to Christmas music without fear of retaliation from anyone around me. I understand that July is a little early to be filling the world with pure, delightful music. However, I still get slack about it right before Thanksgiving. Y’all. I can’t help it. It is the best time of year! I get to just lay back and relax…. hahahahahahahahahahahaha. Yeah, right. I mean that is what I would love to do but good ol’ adulting gets in the way. I want to do crafts and bake to the sound of the same Hallmark movie storyline that I insist on watching over and over while indubitably crying during some…
