It's been a long December (isn't that a song?) between the interminable sickness and rigors of travel. There were highlights that I haven't managed to document very well. Driving from blizzard to blizzard, we were able to visit with family in NH, catch up, marvel at kids who had grown and share Christmas together. We had a good time, we're all safe and we enjoyed our first Christmas in this home.
Good things are coming and there's reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last (wait, isn't that part of the same song?). At this moment, preparations are on for two special visitors arriving tomorrow.
Windows are being washed (the chore of choice around here) as well as a few other things.
Welcome banners are flying and excitement is running high.
...I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
To hold on to these moments as they pass.
