Our first Christmas together was particularly special, for all the right reasons. I (Hunter) found myself away from family for the first time during the holidays, but still wanted to keep up the many traditions my family and I had around the Christmas season. So we begun baking. And baking. And baking some more. The final spread we had, of a bountiful amount of cookies, Christmas wreath snacks, chocolate dipped peanut butter balls and, of course, hot chocolate, was one for the ages. Now it's just a matter of continuing the tradition as we pursue our new life together.
