Christmas

1:06 PM

We got a white Christmas after all!
The snow was just the cherry on top of the best Christmas ever! It was so laid back, cozy and wonderful. This year Christmas was so simple and felt so right. We spent hours cuddled up on the sofa in front of the fire watching Christmas movies. We left the lights on the tree lit around the clock, Christmas music was always playing and there was such a sense of peace and gratitude that we both felt. This Christmas felt like the culmination of everything we have been working towards - we are finally home, we are finally a family. 
Valentina gifted us with a nap during Christmas Eve dinner so we were able to enjoy the roast chicken I made and the lemon cranberry cake I bought. Belle was overjoyed at the amount of snow she was able to bound through and kitty was grateful for the crackling fire that kept her nice and toasty. 
And I was grateful for the two people in my life that make every day the best day ever!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and forgive me for all the photos, I can't help myself when there's snow involved.
