Last night we went to a friend's Christmas party, which was our first one of the season! There's something about getting dressed up in a nice sweater and coat while it's freezing outside and going to mingle with friends. Bonus points if the house is pretty, which it was last night.
Our friend Jen's home is absolutely gorgeous. Not only that, she's an amazing hostess, with the best food, seasonal decor, and music. She had her fireplaces going, a million little tea candles, and lots of lamps on, creating such a cozy atmosphere.
In a weird turn of events, Thomas' brother's girlfriend works for Jen's husband. So we were all strangely connected before we even realized it. Small town, huh?
Our best friends The Kyles, who actually introduced us to Jen, were there too. We hadn't seen them in SO LONG so it was nice to catch up over our favorite pastime: stuffing our faces with food.
Such a fun night meeting new friends, catching up with old ones, and enjoying everyone's company in this festive season. Because isn't that what Christmas is all about? Being thankful for each moment you have with the people you love most.
