This is the first year that I will be spending Christmas anywhere but Salt Lake City. There will be no snow in sight! I am excited for my first Texas Christmas with my husband and new baby girl but it will definitely take effort to make it feel special since we won’t get to take part in our normal family parties and traditions. My husband and I do have a few of our own traditions already, like wearing ugly sweaters every chance we get, making homemade ornaments and stringing popcorn while we watch all the classic holiday movies (A Christmas Story, Home Alone, Elf, The Grinch!) but being the Christmas fanatic that I am, I want to make sure we are getting festive every day.
