Merry Christmas from St. Simons Island, Georgia!
Patrick and I are here reminiscing about our wedding and enjoying family, the beach, and of course– I can’t imagine a Christmas without– seafood.
We had a wonderful morning eating biscuits and opening presents. It’s always interesting how Christmas brings great anticipation for what could be in that box?? Even as an adult, when the presents usually come out of your own pocket book, it’s fun to see what presents bring the biggest surprise.
Over the last few weeks I’ve enjoyed seeing lots of different gift guides around the web, but I don’t think that my style is good enough to guide others. Ha! Somehow in the Carlton family, gifts are often shrouded in a package of “Well, I got this because…” and “if you don’t like it, you can totally take it back.” I call it defensive giving. Still, every year, friends and family are always able to come up with some great and creative gifts!
