This Christmas was a success, while I did receive much of what I asked for. But even more importantly, I have an incredible family and I am so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful people on a daily basis, especially during the holidays. I realize more and more each day how truly lucky I am to have the life that I have, and I could not be more thankful for it or the people I am surrounded by.
I am currently visiting family up north to finish off this holiday season. More food, more presents, parties, and people. I love the holidays. They are just so festive and full of love, and I love being able to spend this much time with the ones that I love the most.
This coming Monday I will leave again for school so I can spend New Year's Eve with my wonderful boyfriend, which I am looking forward to immensely. This is the first time I've spent this much time away from him since a few months ago, and I must say, I miss him dearly. I am looking forward to exchanging gifts with him and I am especially looking forward to bringing in the new year with him. I just feel so blessed and thankful to be able to have a man like him by my side, especially during the holidays (and always).
I just feel so blessed in general to be able to spend the holidays with such wonderful people, and I truly am thankful for this wonderful life of mine.
