I just put my kids to bed and had a weepy moment. I have loved these last two weeks. Every year I enjoy the holiday season even more and every year I am a bit more sad when it’s over because my babies are a bit farther away. I am so blessed. My life is almost ridiculously full of beautiful, goodness. I knew that, I think, but this season brought it home-big time.
We literally hibernated in our home with all our loved ones for almost two solid weeks. We ate. We drank. We watched footballs. We laughed-hard. We rested and rejuvenated. We snuggled and cuddled-a lot. We got out-a bit, but only to ride our new scooters or take our new bikes to the park. It was glorious.
