This season is also all about family. This year is my first Christmas without any of my siblings. Ever. Luckily, I now have in-laws who I can have really loud conversations with LOL The set up of both Ron's and my family this Christmas is very different. Ron's dad is in New Jersey while his mom, sister and nephew are flying home to Manila on Christmas day. On my side, my sister and her girlfriend flew to the Philippines to spend Christmas with family there. Despite that though, I feel very fortunate to have loved ones to spend Christmas eve and day with. I am nothing but thankful for everything this year. Honestly, unemployment sucks but knowing that we got through the holidays more than "just fine" is a huge blessing already. The cherry on top is that our loved ones are into the fact that it's the season for giving, because of that, we are even more than blessed than we were; knowing that we have them and of course, we got awesome presents.
Before I let you go wander off in the other parts of the interwebs, please know that I truly hope you had a wonderful Christmas and may the spirit of giving and being thankful stick with you until the next holiday season.
Ron's sister haven't posted pictures from our Christmas eve dinner yet so I have nothing to share...yet. :)
