I just wanted to hop on here and say Merry Christmas to all of you who have been with me for this crazy year in my blogging adventure. While there won’t be a new “real” post today, as I will be celebrating with my family, I did want to make sure to include my virtual family in my celebrations.
Yesterday, Christmas eve, was our second annual family Christmas party, and I have to say it was a hit. Family from all sides were in attendance. Being from a divorced family can be a struggle around the Holidays, but it is my goal to bring everyone together, despite marriage situations, in order to celebrate and enjoy the time we have together. My step-dad dressed up as Santa and delivered gifts to all the kids, we ate good food, and enjoyed this time despite many differences.
We will be opening presents at home this morning and enjoying a pajama breakfast together. Later this evening we will be going to my dad’s house in order to celebrate with my siblings and their kids. Spending time together is the most important part of this day for me. It is about presence over presents and the love of family.
Join Us Won’t You?
While I won’t be extremely active on social media today, I will be updating my Instagram stories throughout the day in order to share this Merry Christmas with all of my friends and followers. I would love for you to join me there and share with me your magical day as well.
