It has been a Christmas unlike any other. In our little corner of France, we have family visiting from Romania and the United States. It has been a mix of traditions old and new. It has been filled with lots of great food and wine, and even more amazing memories.
Noah and I were lucky enough to be discharged just in time for Christmas and we were able to spend it at home enjoying the true magic of Christmas. Last year Nathan was too small to really enjoy Christmas and spent more time enjoying playing with the wrapping paper. Nothing could compare to the emotions he had this year running out into the living room and seeing the Christmas tree filled with presents that he got to open. I admit that maybe we were more excited than he was. Santa was good to us and we feel very blessed to have had such an amazing holiday.
Even with all of the family, the wonderful gifts and the precious moments. Santa brought me one of the most precious gifts of all on Christmas Day...brotherly love for the very first time and 5 uninterrupted hours of sleep. Who could ask for more?
And now, the tree has been taken down, but the magic of the holiday continues.
I hope you all had a magical Christmas filled with love and magic.
