merry christmas to those who celebrate and happy tuesday to those whom christianity isn't their jam. folks who follow the blog know that we've been busy with renovation projects. the goal is to have the second floor back together by new years. that will be an excellent gift! in the last few months there have been two birthdays, a big anniversary, two holidays and numerous other celebrations. it's been a joyous and exhausting time. i admit that i am looking forward to slowing things down a bit in the new year and refocusing on self-improvement! may you all be happy and find peace along the way!
