My friend Ashley and I were talking the other day about our holiday plans so it got me thinking...
Once you get married, holidays become more difficult don't they?
You want to spend them with your husband but each of you have sets of parents to be with too. And then add in siblings and what they are doing with their family or their in laws. It gets complicated and to be frank, not everyone gets their way on how the holiday is going to go.
In 2013 and 2014 we spent Easter and Thanksgiving in Charlotte with Kevin's parents and went to Maryland for Christmas to be with my parents. My parents came down for Thanksgiving too. Two out of three holidays those years, we were in Charlotte.
(us with our parents)
But in 2015, Molly Anne was born so Kevin and I had to make a decision. We decided to be home for Easter, go to Pawleys Island (to my brother's) for Thanksgiving and be home for Christmas. We thought it was important that even though she was so young, she woke up in HER home for Christmas.
I'm going to do a separate post on Christmas traditions and what all that entails and looks like for this year!
How do you all solve the family dilemma of seeing everyone for every holiday and keeping everyone happy?
