I took a last minute trip to Texas the week before Christmas for a family emergency. I talked about it on my Instagram, but my cousin Sarah won her battle with cancer and is now with Heavenly Father. I didn't get there in time to say my goodbyes, but my mom and siblings were there that night and talked to her. Sarah was such an amazing person and probably too funny for her own good. She also had the most incredible voice and there is a video on YouTube where you can see that I am not wrong! That week made me hug my family even tighter and realize life is so short, so love those around you + be there in the moment. My aunt and uncle also set up a Fundraiser page where you can help other children battling against cancer. I would strongly thank you if you checked out the page!
I know it's late on here, but I uploaded not one but two videos on Christmas! They are both a What I Got for Christmas video, but one is a sit down and the other is fast paced for those who don't need an explanation on things haha. I had an amazing Christmas! It was my husband and I's first Christmas with just the two of us, so it was kind of weird not to wake up and have Christmas with my family... Definitely something to get used to! I hope you all had a great Christmas + a Happy New Year! I have a few blog posts planned so be ready in the next few days.
