Newlywed Christmas Morning by Sarah Carpenter


There's so much excitement built around your first Christmas as husband and wife that it's almost like you're a kid again. Everything you do related to the Christmas season suddenly seems like you're doing it for the first time. Looking at Christmas lights, baking cookies, writing Christmas cards, and decorating your tree are all more magical than ever before. Now you get to make your own traditions together, using the examples your families have given you. All of this joy leads to the much anticipated first Christmas morning together, and life just seems like it can't possibly get better. 

Whether you spend the morning in cozy pajamas by the fire unwrapping presents or get all dolled up and have your family over to your new place for Christmas dinner, it's your first Christmas as your own little family, which is the most special part of it all.
