Holiday Love (+ a Little Break)

Merry Christmas from Bubby and Bean!

Merry Christmas friends! Our families get into town this evening, and we'll all be heading out to my mom and stepdad's house for the next few days. I'll be taking a blog break Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to celebrate with them, as well as the following day to prepare for Essley's birthday party on Saturday. It's almost surreal to think about this time last year, when I was just days from giving birth. It was such a hectic, scary, exciting time. I'm really grateful that this year, even with all we have going on, we're able to take things a little more slowly this week and enjoy spending time just hanging out with family. I'm also so excited about Essley's first Christmas (and first birthday!) that I could burst. This is a really, really great time.

Whatever your plans may be, I hope that you have the happiest of holidays. See you Monday!



  1. Merry Christmas, Melissa!
    I love the card, and I hope your family has a wonderful holiday together. My girls birthdays are the 24th and 25th, so we'll be celebrating bdays as well. =0)
    There's so much to celebrate in that first year, with all the milestones and new memories. And I just wanted to thank you for sharing just about everything with us here on your blog. We get to watch this little cutie grow up right there with you, and she's already amazing like her mama.

  2. Oh how sweet she looks!
    Happy Christmas and wishing Essley a fabulous and fun-filled first birthday :)

  3. Merry Christmas to you and yours and HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY ESSLEY!
