hi, dolls! hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving! i am so excited to have miss jillian, a fellow chicago blogger and bride, here today sharing her ideas for creating holiday traditions as a couple. one of things i'm looking forward to is creating new family traditions with j, which definitely will include baking cookies and playing Christmas music pretty much every day in december!
my fiance, h and i have been dating for 2 and a half years and this will be our 3rd christmas together. we moved in with eachother last year and got our very own itty bitty tree. we decorated the tree together and hung up our stockings while we watched one of our favorite holiday films (i love the original grinch + love actually!) this year i plan to continue that tradition and i am excited about a few new ordinaments to add to the tree. when we go on trips we try to pick up a little souvenir that can be re-purposed as a Christmas ornament (so far we have a little mascots from chicago, arkansas, new orleans, and madrid). aside from decorating our place i love baking up some tasty treats! usually h takes the lead in 'quality control' and tastes everything i make :)
i am always looking for more ways to celebrate the holidays together.
do you have any special holiday traditions?
