Yeah, when I got married at the end of November, Christmas was the last thing on my mind. I think we just sent out christmas cards and got gifts for the kids in the family. We did spend $800 to travel home for our wedding so that was a big chunk of money plus the wedding costs.  Yeah, I’m sure my family and friends understood why Christmas was so ‘light’ for us that year.

I remember feeling like I didn’t want to plan much… and I ended up giving my family their own family portraits for gifts (taken at the wedding) so I felt like my family gift giving was made MUCH easier!

It also made me feel less guilty for doing a budget Christmas… since every understood we just spent a grip of cash on the wedding!!

Yeah, we get married this Saturday and if Fiance hadn’t insisted a couple weeks ago to put in a layaway for our kids I’d have nothing done. 

I have zero motivation for thanksgiving let alone xmas.

After my September wedding, I kept thinking it was spring and summer was just around the corner. I even told a co-worker that it was starting to look like summer. Completely embarrassing. It took about a month to snap out of :).

i actually feel the opposite. While I absolutely loved planning my wedding I was ready for it to be over, although I already miss planning it. I LOVE gift giving and Christmas so now I was excited to dedicate my time to that. I guess it’s my way of dealing with the post pardum depression after the wedding.
