no place like home for the holidays
Most of you guys probably know that Colorado isn’t mine and Michael’s true “home”. We were both born and raised in Dallas and moved in to Colorado about two years ago. Both of our families are all back in Dallas and we always go back there for all of the big holidays! This year with a newborn looks a little different for us. We knew we wouldn’t be ready to fly with Shiloh this young (she’s currently 7 weeks old), so we’re staying in Colorado for the first time during Christmas! We have really sweet families who are making trips out here in December to see us, but we wont’ technically be going “home” for the holidays.
This time of year and having a baby has really made me think of the concept of “home”. What does that really mean? How do you know where “home” truly is? It feels SO bizarre to not be going back to Dallas for Christmas this year, but at the same time, there’s something really special about staying here in Colorado, in our new home, as a new family of 3. I can’t even accurately explain how different life looks for us now. At this point, Michael and I are both pretty sleep deprived, I rarely leave the house, and our schedules are so jacked up haha. But I wouldn’t trade this for anything. I know these days will fly by and I’m so thankful for our new norm, our new family, our new “home”.
So this year we are staying in Boulder for Christmas! Now that I have Shiloh and spend so much time at home, I appreciate cozy loungewear more than ever! We went to Breckenridge last weekend and her and I stayed in by the fire most of the weekend. We stayed at the most amazing mountain home through Vacasa rentals and it was an absolute dream! The house was beautiful, the location was less than a mile from the slopes, less than a mile from downtown, and we 100% could’ve stayed for another week if time allowed haha. I lived in these Koolaburra boots while we were in Breck. I wore them around the house all day everyday, but also wore them when Shiloh and I walked to downtown. I love how warm and cozy they are, so you can wear them almost like slippers, but you can also wear them out and about. The price point on them too is amazing at just under $100! These really make for such a great gift!
With this cold time of year, if you’re also staying home for the holidays and want to just be cozy by the fire, definitely check out Koolaburra boots and slippers. Once you put them on, you’ll be so ready to curl up by the fire with a good book and hot chocolate, and never leave! I’m rounding up a few of my other Koolaburra favorites below!:
What are y’alls plans for the holidays? Are you staying put? Traveling to see family? Regardless of where you’re at, I pray you enjoy being cozy at “home”, wherever that might be, with the people you love the most, embracing whatever season life has you in right at this moment.
Thanks for reading!
