Just to let you know, I have the sweetest husband in the world. Even though we don’t have children yet, he goes out of his way to make our Christmas mornings special. One way he usually does that is by incorporating my giant collection of stuffed animals into the present presentation. This is a shot from our first Christmas together in 2010! LOVE that man. If you’re still on break after the excitement of Christmas yesterday, I truly hope that you get to rest up and enjoy your time relaxing or continuing your celebrations today. If you’re back at work, I wish you a very productive and happy day! If you’re reading this post, I hope you enjoy the following links:
