Merry (Belated) Christmas!


^^ In love with our Christmas card this year, Very Merry Stripes by Petite Alma for Tiny Prints! ^^
^^ these ornaments are definitely some of my favorites! Check out the newspaper crane as well ^^
^^ the only ornament in our tree with some color is this Santa in the shape of Okinawa!! ^^

I know this post is 4 days late but G and I missed our flights to Taiwan, so we decided to extend our trip for another day and we ended up spending Christmas in Taipei. We’ve been trying to relax after having a couple of long days of walking and exploring. Where was i? Oh right, Merry Christmas from my little family to yours. I loved coming back from traveling and catching up on every ones blogs and intagram accounts and seeing how they spent their holiday.

Yesterday, we took our traditional Christmas picture in front of the tree and it was so fun looking back at the pictures of previous years. This was our first christmas in this new house and although we didn’t spend Christmas day here we are enjoying our time together before G goes back to working up north. Did you notice that i decided to take out the red ornaments and add white/silver ones? I think it was the best decision i made because i am in LOVE with our Christmas tree this year!

Stay tuned for Taiwan posts coming to you this week! 😀

Check out our Chrismas throughout the years! (We definitely need new Christmas PJ’s next year!)
