starting a new tradition. by orange

Around the holidays is when we are reminded of all of our family traditions.  When I think of holiday traditions, what comes to mind first is Amy Grant.  I'm not sure if it was a "tradition" per say, however, every Christmas we'd hear the likes of her belting out Emmanuel, Tennessee Christmas, ect. 

This year, the husband and I started a new tradition for us.  We spent Christmas Eve with his parents and sister's family, exchanging gifts, drinking mimosas and playing a couple rounds of Sorry.  Then, Christmas morning the husband and I exhanged gifts and then headed out to a cabin we rented on nearby Whidbey Island.  We've been here for 3 days now and it has been perfect.  So far the agenda each day has been a mixture of: sleep in, drink mimosas, play board games, nap, go out to dinner, watch movies.  Very relaxing which is exactly what we need.

Here are some photos of the cabin:

I hope you and yours have been having a fantastic holiday as well!!
