The Most Wonderful Holiday Break

This past week or so has been an incredible one! Filled with friends and family, and so much excitement - it was the perfect week long break. Relaxing and enjoyable, I enjoyed spending time with some of my favorite people. I took a ton of pictures throughout the week - meeting Alissa of The Adored Life in NYC (yay for blog friends!), dinner with my Aunt, movies and dinner with my Dad and Stepmom and brother, quality time with our favorite NJ couple - Daryl and Paul, and celebrating Christmas with my mom! We got to enjoy amazing southwestern food, see This is 40 and Les Miserables (funny and breathtakingly fantastic, respectively), drink some good wine and see beautiful Christmas lights! 

Josh had to leave NJ on Christmas Day to be back at work on Wednesday morning, and so I got to enjoy some quality time with my Mom and Stepmom on Wednesday before driving back to Boston. Then, I unfortunately got stuck in a blizzard and spent 9 hours driving the normally 4 hour drive back home with the puppy. But then I got to spend Thursday relaxing, Friday shopping, and Friday night and Saturday catching up on movies and spending quality time with Josh. So far, it's been the perfect way to spend time getting ready to go back to school on Wednesday. I took a bunch of pictures over the past week too - and here they are!
