I absolutely love my house but I love it even more during the holiday season. With that being said, nothing beats making the drive to Michigan to spend the holidays with family and friends. Last week, we said goodbye to our holiday decor and Christmas tree as we packed up suitcases and made the drive to my parent’s house.
I always look forward to spending time at my parent’s house but this trip was extra special. A few days before our planned departure date, I received the following text from my brother: “You’re going to be an aunt this weekend! Julie’s water broke this morning and we’re at the hospital.” I immediately ran upstairs, woke up my husband, and shared the good news with him. Even though we were extremely excited to be an aunt and uncle for the first time, we were also nervous and glued to our phones throughout the weekend as we awaited updates.
The baby’s due date was originally scheduled for January 25. However, my little nephew couldn’t wait to celebrate Christmas…and, of course, be a Christmas baby like his aunt. His weight was a healthy amount but his little lungs needed a bit more time to develop. As soon as we arrived at my parent’s house, we immediately went to the hospital to meet our nephew. The first moments shared with him were priceless.
What is your favorite part of the holiday season?
