Whew! It feels so good to sit down with you for a bit and sip a good cup of coffee. I have been so busy lately but the holidays are over now, I survived, and things should start to die down a bit.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had a wonderful Christmas. I visited with one of my brothers who I don’t get see very often and met his very adorable girlfriend. Us kids got together with our dad who we also don’t see very often and it was hardly awkward at all. Then I saw my mother and sisters and niece and nephew and had a ton of fun with them. We spent time with the in-laws, which dwas a bit awkward but also good.
Christmas day was spent just me and my lovely lady. We woke up and made ourselves a nice big breakfast, and then the wine started flowing. We drank, and ate, and watched movies the whole day! I have to say it was definitely the best Christmas ever and I highly recommend couples spend the day lounging with each other rather than stressing and rushing around to make family happy.
There were gifts too. A bunch of camera accessories, filters, and lenses, and what not, and a shark tooth necklace for her from me. I got tickets to see The Nutcracker, which we did yesterday, a big, soft, stuffed snake to tide me over until the real one comes, and a beautiful engagement ring to match the one I got for her last year. Mine has an opal and two raw diamonds, my favorites. Pictures soon I promise.
If we were having coffee I would say that, all in all, it was a beautiful end to the year. All that’s left to do now is to find a party to ring in the New Year at!
If we were having coffee I would also take a moment to say a great, big, thank you to you. I feel like I have neglected you a bit, Dear Reader. I haven’t written nearly as much as I had hoped these past few months, but you stuck by me. You read my posts, even the bad ones, and liked, and commented, and gave feedback and encouragement. I can’t thank you enough for that.
I started this blog just last March with no idea what I was doing or why I was doing it. I still generally feel that way but things are becoming clearer. If nothing else I have learned that I do love to write and to share what I think and feel with all of you. I look forward to spending another year here with you Dear Reader, I am sure it will be even better than the last.
If we were having coffee I would tell you I had better go. There is more writing to be done and I have to get to work. I would wish you all the best going into the New Year, in case I might not see you again. I would give you a hug and tell you the coffee was on me.
See you next time Dear Reader.
