Hope you all had a peaceful Christmas and Hanukkah, AND, a fabulous start to 2020! 🙂
This will be a quick post, I promise.
Here we are, at the beginning of another era, whichever way you think of starting a decade… year 0 or year 1, this beginning is special! We are never going to see the teens again, and that is quite weird to think about isn’t it? Also, if you are a late 70’s baby, like myself, born in 1976, we have lived in six decades, but yet still not fifty years old! Just a fun thing to think about.
So, as you suspect by the title of this post, here I am with a few dozen pictures of our fun times from this December. My family is always on the go, which I love, but it makes it hectic during the holidays with all the festivities and all the birthdays that come with this time of year. Though it was a blur of hosting a lot of get togethers, going out with friends and family, we did end up enjoying the peace that comes with the rush of Christmas hahah.
Here’s my December snapshot…
