Holiday Recap + Photos

Every Christmas Eve the entire family comes to our place to have a big potluck feast and stay up 'til midnight to open presents together.  This celebration is something I always look forward to the whole year.

Even though a handful of family members were missing this year, we celebrated with two new additions - my new baby nephew Raphael and cousin-in-law Jeff.  Welcome to the family guys! 

There's nothing more special than celebrating with people you love.  I'm so blessed to have such an amazing family. ♥

What holiday tradition do you love?

And the icing on the cake... 

Congratulations to my close friend, Rea, on her holiday engagement.  I wish the both of you a lifetime of happiness and little bundles of joy.  ♥
