Today, I celebrate 27 years of life. I am grateful to have the privilege of seeing another year. Grateful for this journey called life. Looking back, I think '...Man! I've come a long way from that 22 year old who started this blog". So much insight, so much knowledge and wisdom and strength is packed into this 27 year old life. So much. I am grateful.

This was pretty much our view the entire time we were in South Carolina. It was a very soggy, dreary week. But as I stated a couple posts ago, it was really nice to get away from the city and be by the ocean. I think we would definitely go back to Myrtle Beach - most likely when it's a bit warmer, and more sunny.

This Christmas, Beau and I spent at home together; just the two of us. We've been doing it for the past 2 years. I admit that I often wish for a huge family celebrating that comes with much anticipation and preparation and reuniting with distant cousin, aunties, nephews, etc. However, we do not have large extended families, and we are okay with that. I prepared breakfast, and Beau cooked us a feast for dinner. (His teriyaki glazed turkey wings were delish!)
One thing I really enjoyed doing this year was wrapping gifts. I could not get enough of it. I've taken a liking to simple kraft wrapping paper, with bakers or jute twine wrapped around it and a cardboard gift tag. I think it added a nice look to gifts and it was my personal touch, you know?
We look forward to building a family and starting traditions with them in the future. But for now, we enjoy the simplicity of the holidays and enjoying our time together as a family of two.
I hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas!
