Flashback Friday: Christmas Edition
Tonight we will be doing what we have done every Christmas Eve since forever: Opening one gift, always pajamas, and listening to my dad (or possibly my grandpa) read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. I will eat too many cookies and I will try my darndest to feel those butterflies and the pure joy of knowing that tomorrow is Christmas. Do you remember that blissful-overwhelming-can't fall asleep-will morning ever get here-feeling? I can and it makes me ache!

The last time I celebrated Christmas in Tennessee was in 2006.
I was just a freshman in college.
My parents and sister still lived in England.
My hair was a lot longer than I remember & my cousins were a lot younger.
It was my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary.
