We also had our annual Zumba® Diva Christmas party. This year we were able to relax at one of our Diva's homes and enjoy her beautiful decorations. It was so nice to talk to all my favorite ladies. I might be just a little bit biased, but I honestly have the prettiest best friends ever. But they have the sweetest hearts to match too.
This year we did something different. Each of us went around and told how we got hooked on Zumba® class. I went last and started to get a little choked up. This group of women that sat with me that night had such a huge piece of my heart. These women are my closest friends. They stuck by me as I lost family members this year, sold a house, moved, renovated, and went through some scary health stuff. They loved me through it all and I have the honor of knowing them and loving them right back. They gave me a special card that night and I tried my best not to cry. I made it home to Ryan and burst into tears. They are so thoughtful and just don't know how much they mean to me.
I love the friends who don't mind selfies and silliness. The ones who can smile even through the toughest days. I definitely have it with these three ladies. One look can set off fits of laughter and it's always contagious. Each girl just has so much joy!
Ryan, Caleb and I decorated around the house for Christmas. This is our favorite time of the year and we are so excited to find places in our new home to put things.
Caleb couldn't wait to help his daddy with the tree! It has always been their job and tradition to put the limbs on, fluff it out, and string the lights.
I think I get this same picture every year and it makes my heart so happy!
And I get to decorate. I think this is the last time it will look this way. I am going with different colors next year, but I thought I would enjoy it one more time.
This tree has now come full circle. Ryan's grandparents gave us this tree a few years ago. We have loved it and now it has come back to the home they once lived in and passed onto us as well. Ryan and I thought a lot about his grandparents as we sat by the tree that night.
