This news was especially hard because there is a new little baby that I desperately need to go see. My amazing sister just had her first baby and all I want to do is give him a big hug and a kiss. We both wanted to go and see our family and friends, tell them how much we love them and miss them, but it will all be ok because I think they already know those things.
Michael and I are going to have our own little Christmas here. We bought a Christmas tree, went shopping yesterday for each others gifts and are making traditions of our own. We will also go see other family in Los Angeles.
It was initially hard to hear that we weren't able to go to Utah for the holiday but, we have both accepted it. Even though there isn't snow or cold weather, fireplaces or hot chocolate, it still feels a lot like Christmas.
