Christmas is never over.

Since I was little, I have spent every christmas driving from one part of my family to another. I started the day waking up, and getting ready. Then we would head to my grandparents on my step-dads side for a few hours before heading to my dad’s house. Next my grandma on my mom’s side, before heading to my significant other’s family. The rest of the week was spent doing the exact same thing. We drove all around the portland area, never staying long before heading to the next place. Usually this pattern lasts until just after new years.

As kids, the constant moving never bothered us much, but the older I get, the more I hate it. Because of this odd pattern we never got to bond with any part of our families. Now that I am a bit older and have moved away, I have decided no more! I spent this christmas, half with my dad and half with my partner’s family. We spent hours together playing games, talking, and eating. I have never felt so close and happy on any holiday. The benefit of moving away, is I don’t live in my home town and I no longer have to deal with the drawn out holidays. We celebrated and now I am back at my home and away from the crazyness of it all.

I love my family, and I love spending time with them. As I get older, I know what is really important, and thats not driving around trying to see everyone. Spending time with those who really are important and care for you is what is most valuable. I spent my holiday with people who like me, put aside everything to make time for our relationship.

Christmas is here and that means… driving?

Happy holidays to all!

Today, I am going to spend driving across a state in order to spend some time with my family. While only 6 hours of driving, it is a lot to do in one day and I would much rather just take the train. Along the way we are going to cozy up and listen to holiday music. We will be staying for only 4 days so its hard to pack my entire family into such a short trip, but we will try!! Over the course of the weekend we will be driving all over town to see my various grandparents and siblings. All the while packing gifts into the car!

I wanted to jump on here before we left and say happy holidays and best of wishes to everyone. We live in such a sad world sometimes. Just a little positivity and love can go a long way. Its important to remember the important things, and thats spending time with others and spreading love.

From my house to yours,
