If you don't know, Alex and I have recently returned to Australia from a 6-week holiday back home to America! We spent the time catching up with friends, visiting family, eating (A LOT), and relaxing. God truly blessed our trip; flying was smooth sailing the whole way through customs and everything, we were blessed financially beyond belief, and built friendships and greater family relationships.
We weren't sure how the cold would feel to us tropical climate acclimated folk, but it wasn't too bad. I was so excited to have a REAL Christmas (chilly, snow, tree hunting, family, cocoa, etc) and it didn't disappoint.
