Christmas Cheer

Is it to early to talk about Christmas? I always make myself wait until Thanksgiving week to listen to Christmas music, and here is why. I listen to it welllll into the new year-- I'm talking February, easily. I know, I know. It's a bit excessive...but it's so cheery!

The other day, I was talking to my friend Em. Em and I are a lot alike-- we call each other "samesies" multiple times a week as we discover more and more ways we are alike. Anyway, Em's family was putting up their Christmas tree and I decided I needed a little Christmas cheer in my life as well. I love, LOVE sending out Christmas cards (seriously. Would you like one? Send me your address! I don't know why I enjoy sending them so much...but I do!)

So, this is my little corner of Christmas cheer. As Christmas cards arrive in my mailbox, they will be added to the small amount of decor I have.

Have you decorated for the holidays yet? Will you?

The Return

(shopping with the nephew)

I’ve begun many blog posts over the past few months. With a full time job and then job searching most of the summer on top of it, blogging hasn’t been a priority in my life. I will be honest, in the beginning I didn’t miss it much at all- but as the months went by I’ve felt drawn back to it.

What to write though? Lots has changed, and yet not much at all. Friends have been made, and lost. Trips have been taken, new family members have been added, there is a new job and new babysitting clients. Summer passed and fall is almost at its end as well. Winter can be such a dark, gloomy season of life for me and it is likely that I will spend more time at home—so I’m back, for the time being. I considered scrapping this blog for good, beginning another one, but the past few years of my life are chronicled on this blog, why leave that behind?

With that said, here are some cute baby pictures for you. In April, I became an aunt when my sister had baby Joseph. He is now seven months old and still adorable. He lives out of the country, so I don’t see him as often as I’d like to—because let’s face it, I could visit him every day and not grow tired! However, I was home for Thanksgiving last week and so were they, so I gobbled (haha, get it? yes, I’m a dork) him right up. Winking smile


Here’s to back-to-blogging, maybe? Smile
