This is my fourth Christmas with Trent and my third in this house and it's been different each time.
This year we set a budget and gave each other free reign to buy whatever we felt we wanted or needed. For myself, I kept in my mind my love for movies, art projects to keep me preoccupied during the oncoming snowy winter, and some new additions to my wardrobe.
The ceramic to-go mug was an incredible surprise from Trent. I've been wanting one for such a long time, and this particular one is so beautifully designed and crafted. Perfect for morning commutes.
The only thing Trent really asked for this year was a new computer monitor for the kitchen, which made it very easy for me to shop for him. We now have not one, but two computer monitors on our desktop. Blogs in high definition? Worth. Every. Penny.
The laptop was also a gift for ourselves for Christmas, bought during the Black Friday madness at a discounted price.
The leather card-holder was a gift made by my friend Grace, who lives in San Francisco. Amazing incentive for me to have some business cards made someday.
I love documenting my favorites after Christmas so that I can come back and remember. We have a tendency to forget so quickly how blessed we are.
Merry post-Christmas everyone. I hope you got everything you needed and then some.
