The family has packed their bags to spend an extended weekend in Galena, Illinois for the holidays. We’ve all quarantined and hubby and I got rapid tests for the virus before leaving just to be on the safe side.
This is the second year we’ve held our family Christmas in Galena. Since my kids are all married with families of their own, we celebrate our holiday prior to the 25th. That way, they can spend Christmas Day with the other side of their family. It just works better this way without the stress and hassle of deciding how to split Christmas Day between families.
Unfortunately, this family holiday is a little bittersweet because my oldest daughter and her entire family tested positive for the virus a week prior to our trip. So they have to quarantine until Christmas Eve. We plan to celebrate with them on New Years if all goes well.
So that’s what’s going on with my week – what are your holiday plans this year?
And now for a little inspiration, here’s this week’s Friday Finds!
