Checkin' In...

Hello friends!

I hope your Christmas was awesome and merry and peaceful and all full of love.

Mine was so very nice and I have to admit pretty relaxing. No traveling. No trip immediately following. Just presents, family, cooking, eating and resting! Oh, and a little more shopping - you know returns, after holiday sales, etc.

I did not really intend to take a blog break but I am guessing I needed it. While I miss hearing from you tremendously, I have not missed being on my computer non-stop like normal.

I cleaned out my kids rooms (to make room for all their new stuff), my make-up drawer and closet (to make room for my new stuff), catching up on laundry (always) , getting ready for guests (coming Tuesday) and guess what I did today?

The end of December?

Planted bulbs. It was soooo warm here today, I really felt the need to do some gardening.

Well, not much else to say except hello, I am sorry I have not visited one blog in about a week and I will be back soon! I hope your new year's eve is festive and safe!

Oh! The pictures above? My friend, Leah Bowman took them.

I. Heart. Them. So. Much.

I think she did a fabulous job, although I have not ordered one photo because it has been so crazy. I did order these on my Christmas card, though so I wanted to share them with you.

Great shots. I have been a little MIA too, I think a lot of people are busy because there hasn't been as much in the way of posting from everyone.

I'm glad your Christmas was good!
