We will not be traveling this holiday season. Why? My foot surgery. Click here for the back story. Super happy about potentially being able to run again. Oh, and walk barefoot on the beach. Feeling very grateful for 2017 technology.
But, being home meant that we could get a real tree… something we have not done in 5+ years. I had forgotten how good the smell of a fresh tree could be. Samantha even asked for a tiny tree for her room. This was a good sign since she previously said she would not celebrate Christmas b/c she is an atheist…. sigh. I found a nice blue bird ornament to remember my mom, and we set up our Clark Griswold lights. Bring on the holiday season….the home version 🙂
