Rather then spend Christmas at home, we packed up and went to a house on the beach of North Wildwood. It didn't feel like Christmas, we didn't want it to. We all had a good time together...relaxing, laughing, and feeling like we owned the entire beach since there wasn't another soul in site. We are heading back down for New Years Eve with a few close friends and family. New Years Day will be the 1 year anniversary of my Mom's passing.
