I hope you are all enjoying the holidays and are taking a break from the everyday madness of life! Yesterday was a very busy day for me as it was my 7th time spending Christmas Day with my partner and his family. It's weird to think that when I first spent Christmas with them I was only 16 and now I'm almost 23? What's even weirder is that his little brother was only 11 years old at the time I spent my first Christmas with them and now he's going to be 18 in March?! So weird? Anyway, I thought I would make a post about the presents I received yesterday from my friends and family as I always enjoying reading this kind of blogpost and watching "What I Got For Christmas" video's on YouTube. (P.S This post is not me bragging about what I got for Christmas or anything like that, I am more than aware that there are those in the world who have very little to give or receive and at the same time there are those who are fortunate enough to not want for anything; but either way this blog post is merely a little bit of fun to show you what I got for Christmas -- no bragging <3)

I would like to thank all my friends and family for my amazing presents, I am so thankful for them <3
So thats Christmas over and done with for another year; This year I wasn't at all ready for Christmas but it all came together in the end. Here's to the memories created over Christmas and the excitement and hopeful thoughts of the New Year to come.
