I'm not sure why, but I always looked at life in times of school years, as opposed to calendar years. It's weird. I know. But it's me...
So while I hoped to get all my 2012 pictures and stories logged in 2012, I'll be honest - I appreciated not thinking (work,school,tasks,etc). Not computering.
a daughter (and daughter in law).
a sister (and sister in law).
Today, I returned to work. Today J returned to school. And as much as we hated it... As much as going back was a drag, we both seamlessly rejoined the real world with smiles & laughter.
We have soaked up the past two weeks of laughing... of playing... of being...
And as we turn the page to 2013, starting new habits at the tail end of 2012, I foresee many more growth changes for us in 2013. J turns 5 here shortly. Bittersweet. Wonderful times.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season. A wonderful break from the every day. A wonderful time to be.
