Bit of Merry


Hello there! It's been a long break, but a much needed one. I haven't been feeling entirely well, so it's been a real treat to have Pop around to help out so much and let me get some extra sleep. We did do a lot of traveling and aren't quite done, but we've also had a little down time at home too, which has been sweet. I could use even more.

It was a lovely Christmas, we were at my mom's and were treated with a fresh dusting of snow on the magic morning. Our dear family friends, David and Cindy, made it a very exciting day for Little Smith.... David made him the most amazing slide and play structure. It's so beautifully constructed and that slide is getting quite the workout in its new home in our kitchen. Lucky little guy.

Tonight we are getting our first real snow in Boston, it actually feels like winter. I'm especially looking forward to New Year's... we have no plans, which originally had me a little bummed because it's always nice to celebrate with friends, but actually with all of the travel and obligations we've had going on, it's going to be really nice to just make a fire, sip some bubbly, and wait for that midnight kiss. 

Looking forward to catching up on everyone's holiday festivities. It's good to be back!
