sweater- present from my mom
top- HM
boots- Anthropologie

When my mom came from Argentina, for my wedding, she brought this sweater with her. As she pulled it out of her luggage, I couldn't stop staring at it.
Of course she didn't hesitate to give it to me after she saw my face; even though I asked her like a million times if she was sure she wanted to just give it to me. After all t was her favorite too, but that's my mom :) 

The sweater has a rustic/Victorian feel to it, and the sleeves are just my favorite. 
She is going to love this post, because she has been asking if I've been wearing it :) 
so... tada!!

skirt- UO
boots- Anthro

On Christmas day I got my green on, and Chris and I embarked to mom's house to celebrate in family.
 I must add it was a cloudy ish/ (sunny as the day progressed) on Christmas, that on the pic below you can easily confuse the background with being a snowy day up north :P

I remember when Chris's mom and I discussed months ago, who was going to host thanksgiving and Christmas at their house. 
I wanted to do Christmas, but she said "I always do Christmas at my house, you can do thanksgiving" 
So that we did. And I'm glad it was like that.

It turned out to be a great Christmas. We all met at her house, opened presents, enjoyed a wonderful meal and watched some of Chris's and his brother's baby videos. 

Afterwards, of course, Chris and his mom grabbed the Xbox controllers and decided to play 'Call of Duty', one of her favorites. Yes, you read that right. 
She was that cool mom who had her own Xbox and a bunch of video games. 
The more guns the better, lol.

Christmas was the last day we spent with her..
She will be missed, but we will never forget that day, nor many of the old memories that we have with her, to remember and smile.

2008, when Chris and I were dating for almost a year. 
This was the first thanksgiving I had with his family. 
Mom said: "no more pictures, I have hat hair" lol I kept being her paparazzi that day. I couldn't help it, I had a new camera to play with. :) 

This next two pictures were at a much later time. We had a mini road trip to Orlando for Harry Potter world for the first time!!!

This next picture (below) cracks me up. 
Every year before Christmas, Chris and his mom would go get a real Christmas tree. So I would always accompany them in their adventure. 
One year mom and I picked the tree that Chris didn't want, and once we got home we realized it was indeed a very naked, skinny charlie brown tree and that Chris was right... 
The following year, mom and I took this picture together reminding ourselves to keep quiet when Chris is looking for the perfect tree. Lol!!!

 I couldn't find a way on how to start this post.. nor do I think there's any easy way to write it...

...On New year's eve, we found out that my husband's mom, (my mother in law), Donna, went to be with the Lord. 
It's been the toughest start of the year for us, so sudden and unexpected.

Truly, we don't understand this loss in our lives, but we know and rest assured that she is now rejoicing with our father in heaven; and that even though we are in deep sorrow, we hold on to this hope that is found in Jesus, and comforts our heavy hearts.

We are so thankful for everyone that has prayed for us, with us, and kept us company in this hard times. It hasn't been easy but being surrounded by our friends and family has helped us tremendously.

Mom you left us way too soon, but this is not a goodbye, for we know one day we will see you again, in heaven.
We love you <3
