Christmas and New Year
 

The new year is close. 2021 is the year we all have been holding our breath for and I'm sure that a good amount of people are excited to put 2020 behind them but I mean, we have no idea what the next year will hold for us. It could even be worse than 2020 itself but the only way to find out is the dive right in and hope that things get better. Only two days left to go and then everything will start over. 

But with that being said I do hope everyone had a great Christmas. I know that I really enjoyed getting away and seeing my dad this year in his new home. We drove up on the 23rd and got in super late. From where we are in Florida it's an 8-hour drive and my boyfriend had to work that day so of course, we left right after he got off and made the trip up. Let me say, even though we got in in the early hours of the morning I am so glad we took the chance and drove up when we did. The news had given us a warning that on Christmas even there would be a big storm that would bring rain, snow, and possibly a freeze over. Looking at the map I noticed that the area my dad lives in was in the line of fire and that made me worry. I knew that both of our cars didn't have snow tires even though my bf had grown up in the snow and ice I wasn't feeling the chance of crashing because of black ice. So of course we made it work out and got in at a crazy hour. 

On Christmas Eve we were able to go to one of the bars and have some food before we got plastered with rain, followed by snow. I was excited because I've never had a white Christmas (or at least one that I can remember) and this was a new experience. Not only that but Lylah hadn't really been able to play in the snow all that much and I was excited for her to experience it and to have some fun. 

 

With the snow falling everywhere we stayed inside, played some games, watched movies, and a few drinks, and just enjoyed being warm and having a quiet but fun celebration together. It was a great time. 

 

Christmas day brought a white scenery that Lylah and I were ecstatic about. We went outside and she went bannanas. She ran all around, stuck her face in the snow, dug up the snow to stick her head in rabbit holes, and just gave me so much joy seeing her so happy. The husky in her is super strong and I was more than happy to give her some joy and give her a taste of what our future will have. 

 

I'm not going to lie, I had a lot of time this year to really think about what I need and I have had a lot of time to digest what is around me. There's a lot of things in my life that is so rocky but this little trip helped me in regrounding myself. No Matter what happens and no matter what comes in this next year I know that it's all for a reason and it's ok. It's ok to be unsure, it's ok to have the good, bad, and ugly on your doorstep. You just have to pick it up, take it as it is, and move on. 2021 might be a challenge and full of change but I think it will be ok in the end. 

Let's see what this next year will do for me.
