I know Christmas is a long way away, but my family is going away. As in, Carter and I aren't. And the reality of having Christmas without my family for the first time ever just hit me. Yeah, Carter's family will still be around.. But my family won't be. No Grinch on Christmas eve. No homemade Christmas gifts, no stockings, no board games until 2AM, no waking up at 4AM. No dinner. No afternoon naps in the living room. Growing up is hard.

Happy Thanksgiving.


  1. I feel your pain Nicole! I'm in the exact same shoes as you, except Jon and I are the ones who are leaving and my family is staying behind. We'll get through this together!

  2. I'm even staying at my parent's house. Saaaad.

  3. What a great opportunity to start some of your own traditions! And by the way, you can have Christmas day naps anywhere!


I love comments!
