Obligatory New Years Post

I am still not prepared to write about my vacation, I hardly even discuss it in person. I am selfishly holding onto the memories as if sharing them will cause them to slip away from me. Soon, though, I promise to share my adventure with the world. As you can see from the title this […]

Holiday Tragedy

Yesterday afternoon I was 90% finished with my day after Christmas post. I had outlined the hi-jinks of my in-laws, my jet lagged entertaining, and the bouncing around I endured in Christmas eve.

Raw Emotions
