Christmas Time is Here!

On Christmas Eve, I will leave Seoul, stop in Tokyo and Los Angeles for layovers, then arrive in the beautiful city of Atlanta where my family will pick me up for a week at home!!

I honestly cannot convey to you how excited I am without being with you in person.  The sound effects really make it.  But, I will let you know some of the things I'm super excited about.

I will get to see my family!  Obvious, but awesomest as well.
I will get to see my boyfriend! He'll be stopping in Christmas day and then we will visit his father's family for a short time in North Carolina.  If you  have any tips for "meeting the extended family" for the first time, let me know!
My sister and I are going to have a day all to ourselves!  I miss that kid so much, and I'm so pumped to get to spend a good amount of time with her.
I will get to see my best friends!  Near the end of the week, Millie and Sweeny will be coming down to hang out with us!  My 6 most favorite people in all the world are going to be in one place.  How wonderful is that?!

Also, I'll get to see my dog, I'll get to play my piano, I'll get to eat macaroni and cheese, and I'm pretty sure I'll get to hang out at some of my favorite place in Newnan (my beautiful hometown) and probably even sneak in a burger from Red Robin.


I've finally begun decorating my room, by the way, circa high school and of college.  I've tacked up an old clock face I found by the trash piles, some Egyptian papyrus I bought from missionaries who spoke at my church, pictures, postcards, and a few scenes from an old calendar.  It's eclectic, and it's familiar.  I really like it.  I wouldn't mind adding some Christmas lights, though, and maybe some sheer fabric hanging from the ceiling in soft drapes.


Because I'm going to be spending time with my family, I'll be taking a break from blogging for at least a week.  I hope your holidays are lovely!  I know mine will be.

This is my family and I last Christmas at a friend's party.  Washed out, red eyed, and wonderful.

  1. Happy Christmas! I'm so happy for you that you get to go home and see your family and boyfriend and friends!

    As far as meeting the other family for the first time, I think that it's easier to just stick to the boy, but it's good to maybe reach out a bit and just be friendly to everyone and ask questions about the family.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! If there is something you want me to respond to specifically, feel free to send me an email; I'd love to chat.
