I traveled to New York for Christmas. It was my first time to see the new house since it was put up and all the furniture arrived. I was so happy to see my parents and brother living in such a beautiful, safe, amazing house. It was incredibly weird though, to be in this brand new home and look out the window and see our neighborhood! Totally surreal.
Christmas Eve was spent at my cousin Michael’s house. I have been close with Michael and his parents my whole life. I’m also very close with his wife Jamie. We have been gathering on Christmas Eve at either Michael’s house or my Uncle Lenny’s house (when he lived in NY) since I was about 6. This Christmas Eve was a really, really lovely night.
So thankful I got to spend Christmas Eve with people I love most in the world.
