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!
