The day after Thanksgiving, we decorated our apartment for Hanukkah--a new married tradition, with a playlist of merriment. Next year, we'll add Hanukkah stockings, to be filled with chocolate gelt and little love letters.
Two months after the wedding and, just like that, we're in the midst of our craziest season! Hanukkah, back-to-back birthdays, snow days, and full-on merriment! It's beginning to look a lot like Winter Break, of the strangest school year yet.
And this December, a first, a family together: a brother who lives in Manhattan, a sister driving down from Baltimore and a mom and sister dwelling in an Airbnb. And the most handsome husband.
For Hanukkah, Jordan bought us matching Hanukkah pajamas and I had a glimmer into all that is to come. So close to then end of this absolute rollercoaster of the year and I am grateful for what has been---but, mostly, for all that is to come.
Oh, how I love being merried to you.
