A very happy and blessed belated Christmas to one and all out there! It’s a belated Christmas wish because I had wanted to post something before I left for my Christmas vacation, but there was some booboo with my internet connection a week ago which caused me to have no access whatsoever to all of my blogs. Thankfully though, I returned home yesterday evening and joy oh joy, the connection had been restored.
This year, I didn’t have to wrap any presents, because the leasing office for the apartment I am staying in provided complimentary gift-wrapping services, complete with a selection of Christmas wrappers and gift tags. Ain’t that cool?
Though amid all Christmas celebrations, we need to remember first and foremost what Christmas is really all about…

… and I am so grateful that I was able to celebrate it once again this year with my loved ones in a very memorable manner. I’m thankful that despite the adversities life has thrown my way, Christmas still bears the same meaning each and every year, and every time, the meaning grows deeper within my soul.
So…where did my family and I head off to the past week for our Christmas vacation? Well, here’s a glimpse of ONE of the several places we were at:
One word: MAGICAL
Of course, coming home was a sweet experience too, especially when we tucked in to a nice warm dinner in a local Vietnamese joint.
And hey, I must have been a pretty good girl all year through too, ‘cuz I got a nice little surprise from Santa in the mailbox as well.
Santa’s quite telepathic, I’d say, for it’s something I had wanted. 🙂
So that was my Christmas in a nutshell post, how was yours?
