HDFB Weekend Recap: Christmas in Connecticut

Can you believe Christmas has already came and went? The holidays always seem to fly by so quickly, but I somehow manage to take it all in and enjoy every possible second of them that I can. This year, for the first time ever, I celebrated Christmas away from my immediate family and celebrated the holidays with my fiance and his family in Connecticut, my future in-laws if you will. I finally met his little sister, which only took almost 2 1/2 years, but was worth the wait! We spent the week eating, drinking, and listening to his family tell adorable stories about Andrew growing up. Oh, and eating some more. On Christmas Eve we devoured homemade soups and wine with some family friends. Christmas morning was spent enjoying homemade cinnamon rolls, drinking coffee, and opening endless gifts. On our last day of our trip, we headed to New York City to see the tree in Rockafeller Center, window shop, and of course, eat. I loved celebrating new traditions with my family-to-be and it wouldn't be a HDFB recap without some photos!

Rachel's new selfie stick really came in handy for group photos in NYC!
