Last Christmas I went with Tyler to Oregon to visit his family. It was quite an experience. It was the first Christmas I was away from my family and didn’t do the Christmas traditions that I usually follow.
Just a few weeks before Christmas, Tyler decided he wanted to visit his dad for the holiday and we suddenly got thrown into planning a trip out. (I mean I wasn’t going to spend a Christmas without Tyler) It was crazy to get it to all work out.
As we got on the plane, I wasn’t really thinking about Christmas. I was mostly excited to be heading back to Oregon. I love it there and it’s so beautiful. Once we arrived we had some fun with Tyler’s family and just catching up with everyone.
Then it hit me. I was going to miss Christmas with my family. I did get a tiny bit homesick, but it passed pretty quickly. I enjoyed spending the time with Tyler's side of the family. Their traditions were so different from mine, but it was still great.
After Christmas we spent a couple more days with his family before coming home. It was nice to stay a while after the holiday.
Overall it was a great trip and one I hope we can continue to take in future years.
Although the trip was great I’m really excited to spend this Christmas at home with my family and doing the traditions I have always done, while creating new ones with Tyler this year.
