We are back!! We had SO much fun with our families and loved ones. These trips are always jam-packed with as much fun and as much food as possible, in a far too short amount of time. Yes, we came back with overly full bellies, and an incredible amount of thoughtful gifts. I will admit, I really love the gift exchange part of the Holiday’s. Patrick and I take a lot of time to make everyone in our families useful and unique gifts. For us, these gifts are a message and a keepsake of our love. We are always showered with just as many (and often times far more) unique and extraordinarily thoughtful gifts from our family members. In all honesty, I feel extraordinarily lucky to have people in our lives to spoil us, overfeed us and immensely love us…so, thank you! x0x0
Of course since life is all about balance, we had to even out all of our food glutton and indoor gifting time, with some pretty wonderful outside time. The snow this year for us has been really low, so we opted for more hiking and exploration adventures this year. One of Patrick’s favorite gifts was a new woodland axe, so naturally he wanted to go test it out. We packed our bags full of thermos’ filled with tea, tin-foil potatoes and carrots, sausage and extra down jackets and headed out into the woods for a daily camp-fire and fresh air time.
Here are some of my favorite photos of our trip. Happy New Year to all of you, and I hope your Holiday’s were beautiful and filled with love.
