After an amazing time in Tennessee for the holidays, we finally made it back to NC, and got ready for the arrival of my parents! They moved us into our apartment back in July, but hadn't been back since, so we were thrilled to show them our abode and our favorite new spots in Durham.
We were able to do a big lunch w/ my cousins and their beautiful kids, while my parents were here. It had snowed the day before and it was so much fun. I have lots of family in NC, who we have loved seeing since we moved here!
Next, it was Christmas w/ my fam, stockings and all! My mom and I prepared a yummy meal of ham, mac and cheese, sweet potato casserole, spinach casserole, and chocolate cake. It was amazing!

For New Years, we drove to Emerald Isle Beach to visit my aunt and uncle and had a wonderful time. My aunt cooked an amazing meal, we enjoyed a beautiful sunset and walk on the beach, and a bonfire w/ champagne and s'mores. It was definitely a fun and relaxing New Year's Eve.
For my parents last day, we enjoyed the deliciousness of two of our new favorite Durham eateries...
Guglhupf's Bakery and Pop's. Thanks so much Mom and Dad for coming to celebrate a belated Christmas and New Year's w/ us! We love you!
