My Favorite Holiday Break Moments In Photos

Holiday break has been really nice! I was off from work at the magazine 12-20 through 12-26. I dipped back in on the 27th, then was off the 28th through the 2nd. Yeehaw! I’ve been hanging with my son, fam and friends nonstop!

Here’s a look back at some recent memories that left me feeling squishy and warm—and stuffed! What a great break!
