Old Family + New Family = Happy Christmas

Skulls, butterflies, and Christmas kitsch! My favorite Christmas decor of 2013, as seen at Apartment Therapy.
I feel like the luckiest. I'm preparing to celebrate my first Christmas as Mrs. Williams with my parents, my husband, and my new Williams family. I'm so glad Keith's family decided to come to Nashville so we could all celebrate together. I treasure the traditions I share with my own family: Silly trinkets in stockings, peppermint ice cream, Chevy Chase, and wildly inappropriate holiday music (Zero by the Smashing Pumpkins does NOT qualify as "A nice song about God," but the expression on our mother's face was so, so, so worth it).

I love my new family too, so I'm looking forward to creating new traditions with Keith. I hope he's up for a cutthroat after-dinner game of Settlers of Catan for, oh, the next 50 years. Everything feels (almost) complete. If my sisters were here, it would be perfect. Kelly and Erin, I'm thinking of you today.

Whoever you are, and wherever you are, I hope you have the same sense of contented joy today. Happy Christmas!
