When Pat and I got married, I knew we'd be moving far away from family. This wasn't exactly the kind of life I had dreamed of as a little girl, but Pat made it worth it. While we did travel home sometimes for the holidays during our newlywed years, I knew it wasn't going to continue like that. I wanted to have my own family celebrations and traditions. My ideal would be living in easy driving distance so that we could celebrate at our home and then travel to be with family too. Unfortunately, it doesn't work like that from TN.
So what are we doing this year?
We're traveling to see family. Shortly after Christmas we'll be putting our house on the market and by the spring (fingers crossed) moving elsewhere. I guess because this will just be a home in our memories soon, I don't feel the need to stay here this year.
I'm really excited to spend time with my family. I am looking forward to seeing the boys on Christmas morning at Grammy and Grumps' house. It is really special to me because the boys will get to experience a Christmas just like the ones I had for so many years.
And I'm hoping for a white Christmas, but it just can't interfere with our travels to and from there.
Who do you spend the Holidays with?
