The past few weeks have been a whirlwind! Finals, Christmas shopping, and spending a few days in Parris Island for my brothers gradation from basic training for the Marines had me running all over the place this December. It is finally Christmas Eve, and all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is winding down. I am looking forward to relaxing and enjoying time together with my family and friends. This Christmas is especially wonderful with my brother home after three months of basic training. I missed him terribly and so proud of his incredible accomplishment. Our family is so lucky to be able to spend the holidays with Steven. Thank you to everyone who is serving our country and sacrificing their holiday this year. I wish you a safe and wonderful holiday season, and I pray you come home soon.
