So Today/Tonight's post is all about Christmas, Faith, Family & of course fashion.. if you have a fashion problem like I do .. or rather an addiction. Anyways today's posts features my lovely family! We got to take these pictures on the way to Church, once at church & after! I am so beyond lucky to have such a beautiful family inside & out. I adore my younger brother.. even if we get on each others nerves... and believe me I know how to push his buttons & he knows how to get my blood boiling but at the end of the day.. Blood is thicker than water, and I will always love him, stand up for him. and be there for him no matter what the circumstance. That's the beauty about family they can voice their opinion, "tell you how they really feel", be disappointed in your actions...but at the end of the day you know they will always be there open arms..no matter how great or terrible the situation is. I am lucky to have been able to grow up with such remarkable examples of parents in my life. Today Divorce is all to common, and when & if the day comes I want my vows to mean more than just "till death do us part" because honestly I want forever, and my grandparents are still together after 54 years and happily married.. and my parents have been happily married for 23 & 1/2 years... to me this is such an amazing blessing. They have set the standard pretty high for whoever the Lord leads me to in my life or brings into my life when the time is right.. not going to lie.. I get impatient.. sometimes frustrated & even lonely but I know when I meet the person I am meant to be with it will be all worth it, and I know this because of two generations of fantastic relationship examples. I want to say thank you to both my grandparents & parents, for all they have taught me and continue to teach me even if they don't know I am learning from them! Yes presents are fun I love giving them more than receiving them.. I hate opening gifts to be honest when I think about it my palms start getting sweaty.. (yuck I know).., but I love the smile on the persons face when they open the gift you bought them & their eyes light up & their smile shines so bright you can feel the joy & excitement! But even if we didn't have present to enhance this amazing holiday.. I know we would still have just as good of a time, my favorite time of the holidays.. is when we sit down and all eat together say grace, & just talk. I also love when all the joyful chaos calms and I find myself thinking about everything I have accomplished this year, who made an impact on me, what I am proud of, who inspires me, and what I am truly grateful for. I wish everyone a glorious Christmas & Holiday!
