The aftermath...

We had a lovely first married Christmas in our new home. I couldn't have asked for more. My hubby is so thoughtful, sometimes I feel undeserving. I'm quite domestically challenged. Santa (aka: my inlaws) got us a grill for xmas, so Kev and I decided to do Christmas dinner for just the two of us. It was nice to have some quiet alone time after the bustle of the holidays. Sometimes it's hard trying to merge two familes... you want to spend time with each family, which made our holidays rather stressful when we were dating. Always a rush. I think we've got things ironed out. This year was perfect. We spent Christmas Eve afternoon Kev's parents, the evening with his side of the family, Christmas brunch at my parents, and then headed home for our romantic solo dinner. Kev grilled some filets, and we had asparagus cooked with soy sauce, garlic, mushrooms and tomatoes. So delish. Oh, and mashed potatoes. And some wine from our favorite local winery. Perfection...

Unrelated to Christmas, Kev got me these flowers last week so I was just practicing on them. It's going to be quite an adjustment with my new camera. I feel like I'm starting all over again!


The survival of my favorite tree in our backyard... I think it's a Japanese Maple tree. Pretty exotic, don't you think?
