I haven't shared a life lately post recently and thought my holiday photos were the perfect theme. This was one of the best Christmases I remember in a long time. Since my grandparents (my mama's parents) passed away several years ago, the holidays just haven't been the same for me. And while I still miss them terribly, this year was the best family gathering for me since they left us. Since my mama's family is so large, we decided to do a Chinese gift exchange. We laughed until we were in tears. We celebrated Christmas morning and "Santa" gifts at my townhouse and had dinner with family later that day. It was so relaxed and absolutely perfect. And the best part? I'm still on break from work until this Thursday!
