I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
This was my first year celebrating Christmas away from home. I have a huge family and no matter where we are in the world, we always spend the holidays together. Unfortunately, this year I was unable to fly back to Connecticut for two reasons: work schedules, and the flights are just SO expensive.
So, for our first Christmas away, J and I decided that we'd celebrate Christmas with a little trip to Budapest. The beautiful buildings and Christmas markets that we saw online certainly drew us in.
We wanted to make our first Christmas away special, so to do this we made some of our favorite foods in our rented AirBnB apartment. We brought a special block of cheddar cheese (hard to find in Vilnius and a gift from friends) and some of our Christmas gifts and enjoyed our favorite Christmas movies. We had a relaxing yet fun day here in Budapest.
Here's hoping that we'll spend next Christmas with family, but we certainly made the most of being away this year!
How was your Christmas? How did you celebrate?
