My Christmas was my first one without my dad. He passed away unexpectly in Aug. It was very sad but i have learned to be more grateful & appreciated to have my mom. I tell my mom i love her each time i see her now. You dont know how much you care for your parents until you lose one.
I loved this Christmas!! For the first time we went up to our daughters in Louisville. She just got an apartment there last summer, it's a one bedroom so our 17 year old daughter stated at her sisters and my hubs and I stayed in a nearby hotel. We love Louisville (in fact, moving back there this summer) and I personally love the many photography opportunities there!
