A Unique Opportunity

That's what I'm calling this holiday season, a time that is meant to be so beautifully focused on family time and love. Well ... this year Rob and I are taking part in a whole lotta family time as we have left our charming rental in historic, downtown Frederick for the spare room in my parent's basement. Yup, these newly married grown ups with steady jobs have opted to give up some of our privacy and the respectability of living on our own to save some dough and figure out where our life together is headed next. Now I've made it seem kind of serious and sad, but it's really neither of those things. Two weeks later and all we can think is how incredibly grateful we are. We know this is only temporary but I have a feeling that this will be one of those experiences that we look back on fondly. Just the other night, we were around to help string lights on the Christmas tree and take turns adding ornaments. It was all so wonderfully warm and fuzzy.

I've had my share of not-so-happy holiday seasons, so I know that moments like the one described above are meant to be relished. So that's what I plan to do with my unique opportunity, relish it for all it's worth!

I hope you are having a very merry holiday season so far. More food (and less words) coming at ya soon!
