Welcome Back

Here I am...looking up recipes and making yet another grocery list

Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.  Were you able to relax and enjoy December or are you glad the chaos is over?  I made it through okay.  I wasn't quite as organized as last year, but overall I managed to have a lot of fun and not allow the excess of the season stress me out.  I had a fabulous visit with family, and we did all the things you're supposed to do over the holidays:  too much food, too much wine, lots of games, and presents, and dancing...  I enjoyed a long leisurely lunch with my mom and sister, who, by the way, shared some joyous and shocking news.  Christmas miracles abound...

And now it's 2012.  Like last year, I've decided against making specific resolutions.  Instead, I'm going to continue to focus on taking care of myself, doing things I love to do, and making time for family and friends.  I am excited about the start of a new year and am looking forward to many exciting adventures.  It already feels like the year is filling up with travel and various events (weddings, graduations...), so we need to prioritize and start to plan everything out.  It's all awesome stuff, so I'm excited to get started.  First up - ski lessons with my big boy, starting next weekend! 

Oh, if only he would sleep this soundly at night!
