I cannot believe tomorrow is christmas eve already. that happened fast. 

[J] & I made our holiday plans in advance this year to ensure we spent quality time with both of our families. [especially after my minor married holiday rant]. on december 13th, we were off to chicago to spend the weekend with [J]’s parents. but there was a family emergency, and his parents boarded a flight for colorado as we were on our way to illinois. and last weekend, we had plans to visit my hometown + celebrate with my family. but a ‘major’ snow storm hit the midwest, and kept us in our apartment. to say I was disappointed would be an understatement. we thought we had the two family, two different state christmas puzzle solved ..wrong-o. as the grinch would say. 

I would assume this is where holiday stress stems from.

instead of sulking, [J] & I made the most of our weekend. we baked + decorated cookies. went out for brunch. and watched an insane amount of christmas movies.

sometimes you just have to make lemons cranberries into lemonade a stiff drink. and roll with the punches.

fortunately, my parents + grandparents are traveling to colorado on christmas. and have decided to take a pit stop in des moines to spend christmas eve with [J] & I. so today I’ll be busy transforming our little apartment into the scene of a beautiful holiday feast. wish me luck.

see you tomorrow!

and happy monday.
