Merry Christmas everyone (for two days ago!) I hope you all had an amazing day, whatever you were doing.
Christmas felt a little odd this year. No matter how many times I watched Elf or Miracle on 34th Street, or how many times I listened to Fairytale Of New York and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, it just didn't properly feel like Christmas. I think because this last month has been so busy and stressful with wedding planning, my mind has been completely preoccupied with table plans and centrepieces to feel festive.
However, when the morning came and Santa had delivered a sack full of goodies for Lily, and our little family of three all put on our Christmas jumpers and socks, I finally felt in the spirit of things! After watching Lily open all her presents (a little mermaid doll, a dolls house, a teeny sewn rabbit in a matchbox, a drawing board, Bambi DVD, a picnic basket and her favourite... lots of stickers!) we spent a lovely family day at my parents house where we were all completely spoiled with gifts and food! Lily absolutely loved her day, then we got to do it all over again with David's family yesterday!
I'm hoping I can enjoy the whole Christmas season a lot more next year and really get into the spirit of things as it will be our first Christmas as a Mr And Mrs!! This time next year we will be preparing to celebrate our first anniversary as a married couple. We get married THIS SUNDAY. 1 day and 18 hours. Wow!!! I am SO excited!! I have had a fluttery excited feeling in my stomach all week. Today I am picking up my dress (eeeeek!) and tomorrow I'm helping David's mum who is a cake maker decorate 70 cupcakes, and then it will be our wedding day!!! How crazy!!
The next time I blog, I will be Mrs Gower. And we will finally be a properly official little family!
See you all very soon!
P.S: I had to write this post on my phone as my laptop isn't working and I don't have all of my usual options, so sorry if it looks a bit funny!
