LA Christmas prep

Mar 15, 2022Lifestyle, Photo Diaries

12.09.2021 — A few days after we arrived in Los Angeles, Ian and I got in the Christmas spirit. My in-laws usually host a big family dinner on Christmas Eve, and me being a lover of festive holiday decorations, we got to work early to put up the Christmas tree and lights all over the house. Ian’s parents have the cutest ornaments they’ve collected over the years, and it was like unboxing a little bit of family history. I also thought it was cute and funny that all three stockings had Ian’s name on it.
