Today, I am joining a group of amazing bloggers for our Let's Be Honest Mamas series and this month we are talking all about the holidays. My friend Kacie from Elements of Ellis puts these group posts together once a month. I think it's really fun to read other mama's opinions and ideas on subjects we all talk so much about. I linked everybody else participating this month at the bottom of this post so be sure to visit their blogs!
Christmas always looks a bit different for us because we are a military family, usually stationed in a different state from our families. We try our best to create happy memories for our little family while still trying to balance traveling and spending time with extended family without too much financial hardship. We learned what works best for us during this season of life.
