A very merry Christmas it was indeed

The holidays are over and we’re already in the middle of January. After spending the last two Christmases in Ireland myself and the little one were in for a treat this year. The month of December is so full of traditions and a time I miss my Swiss home the most. So it was with great excitement that I booked my flights to spend the festive days at home. As always with those international relationships it was bittersweet as it meant spending Christmas with only one of my men. But it was great to catch up with friends and family and show off our beautiful little boy to everyone. Here’s just a few pictures of our trip. I hope you enjoy them!
