Ever since I was a distant thought in my parents’ mind, my family has been spending the Christmas holiday in New Jersey. Even though I was born in Atlanta (#piedmontbaby), my parents are from neighboring New Jersey towns where most of our extended family still resides. When my sister and I were little, the excitement of driving 13+ hours every Christmas to see family was exhilarating, and the chance of snow? Just magical!
Over the years, even when the 13 hours turn into 17 hours of sharing the backseat with the dog, and the cold weather becomes a pain to pack for, the end result of being surrounded by family all day on Christmas is just priceless. (Especially when there are 17 people and 5 dogs on Christmas morning – dog-friendliness is a requirement in this household!)
30 years of New Jersey Christmases and counting for this girl!
Here is a review of our Christmas 2014 in pictures – hope you all had a great Holiday Season!
