Christmas 2015 took place in Iowa this year, where the wind outside was sometimes unbearably frightful but who cares when your reading a new book on the living room couch, wrapped in a fuzzy blanket and sporting a pair of thick wool socks that would make even the sheep grunting in the barn out back envious. …

I thought: maybe THIS year is the year. The year we finally send out, after nearly four years of marriage, our very first Christmas card. Maybe this year I’ll find time and energy and motivation to write one of those full page Christmas letters that over-exaggerates our accomplishments and activities of 2015. Oh I’m SURE you know exactly …

Snowmageddon decided to waltz right through Minneapolis on the same day that I rediscovered this bulky scarf hiding in the back of our closet. This same bulky scarf that makes Darrin smirk and say “Well doesn’t that look nice?” whenever I toss it over my coat because he knows how frustratingly long it took me to knit this stupid thing …

After much brainstorming, deliberation, and a two-person unanimous vote, Darrin and I have decided to celebrate our own Christmas this upcoming Monday, the day before we road trip ourselves down to Iowa for the rest of the week’s holiday celebrations.

A happy post-Thanksgiving to you and yours! These photos were taken earlier this week, before Minnesota decided to bless us with a Thanksgiving miracle and finally SNOW (yes! snow!) on Thanksgiving day.
