This Christmas…

What a wonderful day we had. My honey created a wonderful tree and gift staging area complete with tiny stockings since all of our decorations are in storage.

I got lots of fantastic goodies…

A Steve Madden barrel bag which was an AMAZING surprise that my honey picked all by herself.

A Martha Stewart loom knitting kit…just to name a few.
We went to breakfast at IHOP and then went to see DJANGO at the movies.
The hardest thing was being away from my family. I miss my parents, my baby girl, my siblings, nieces, nephews and cousins. No matter how happy the times I do have, I feel the void of being so far from everyone.
