Sunday, November 13, 2011

Today's post is an addition in the November Sunday series on the Holidays.  And today's guest post is by my wonderful bloggy friend, Camylla!! 
Camylla has a super cute blog called "Simply Me" and if you don't already follow her, well, you will want to now!  I LOVE her sense of style and her tutorials and this chick knows how to cook.  She will be guest posting again soon with a wonderful recipe you'll be dying to try!

Hello all of Joy's lovely readers! I'm Camylla from "Simply Me" and I'm so happy that Joy invited me to guest post today. I loved the topic she gave me... Christmas!!! {my all time favorite holiday}

I have a really big family My mom's side of the family all live in Brazil, and my dad's side all lives here and even though were kind of separated, the family that lives here is still huge. Brazilians are known for their sence of humor, personality, parties and my family is no exception, We LOVE PARTIES! and when we do them, we do it BIG! Getting together with all my family is awesome. I have 12 cousins that live here, and were all around the same age, so when we get together the party lasts all night. No, literally, ALL NIGHT! The party is usually at my Grandmas house, so we bring our pijamas and sleep there because we make so much food that everyone comes back and has it for lunch the next day!

Dressing up is also one of my favorite things! It's like a fashion show, we start all year looking for the PERFECT outfit to wear for christmas. Every year we do secret Santa and its deff one of the best parts of the whole night! It's so fun to share presents with the ones you LOVE!

 This is already the day after. When we all came back for leftovers.

I have to admit, this year I'm not looking forward to Christmas that much. It will be the first time in my life that I don't spend with my mom, dad and sisters. Christmas just wont be the same without them, but I'll try to enjoy it as much as possible and hopefully this is the first and LAST time this happens... 

I hope you all have an amazing Holidays, filled with love and joy! Come and visit me sometime at Simply Me.

Thanks Camylla!  It looks like you and your family have a wonderful time during the Holidays!  And even though your mom, dad and sisters won't be with you this Christmas, you know they will be with you in spirit and thank goodness for pictures, right!  =)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!
