I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and wish that you all have a prosperous New Year!
Although last Christmas Toney and I were very much in Love and were planning on spending our lives together, unfortunately, we were unable to spend Christmas together meaning this Christmas was extra special for us.
Christmas has always been my favorite time of year, spending the most part of a week with all the family, playing games, eating your weight in food and just enjoying the time with loved ones. What more could you want?
This Christmas it was only the three of us (Toney’s dad joined us) as grateful as I am that Toney and I were able to spend Christmas together, I missed my family terribly back in England too. I’ve never spend Christmas away from home so it definitely felt different this year, much quieter & not quite the same. Nevertheless, I had my first American Christmas with my wonderful partner.
Toney made an awesome Christmas dinner with both turkey & ham, lots of trimmings and he spent the whole of Christmas eve baking desserts & pastries. I tried my first ever peach cobbler with homemade ice cream and whipped cream, it was delicious! We spent the rest of Christmas Day watching films, playing games and relaxing.
The following day, what we would call “Boxing Day” in England we spent enjoying more leftovers with more relaxing. On the evening we decide to take a stroll through a very Christmassy Eustis town and have dinner at the local restaurant we enjoy eating at called 1884.
Looking forward to reading about how you spent your Christmas and can’t wait to get back into my blogging routine in the New Year!
Happy New Year to you all! May your 2018 be perfect!
