Christmas Adventure

trip2

Hello again. I know it is a little late, but I hope that you all had a very Merry Christmas! I spent my week visiting with family almost twelve hours from home, so it was really special because we don’t get to see them very often. I am also thankful that I was able to be there to celebrate three big birthdays this year! This was actually the first winter that we have ever traveled to that part of the country, and the weather couldn’t have been any better. Though it was much colder than it was back home, it didn’t approach the sub-zero temperatures that we were expecting. Everyone kept telling us that it was unseasonably mild, so we were lucky that we could actually enjoy ourselves at this time of the year.

I also ate one of the biggest sandwiches that I have ever had at Primanti Bros. It was delicious, but it was ginormous; I have no idea how I was able to fit it into my mouth. I think my favorite part of the trip has to be snow-tubing with my cousins because I loved the adrenaline rush of racing down those tall, icy slopes. From snowman building to ordering a table-for-twenty dinner, we all had a really great time, and we certainly filled this Christmas with many memories.

Have you traveled anywhere recently? How was your holiday? I am super behind on the Reader, but I will try to catch up to some of your posts within the next few days. Thanks for reading!

hugs

Kiwi and Olive seem to have missed me while I was away, because I was showered with so many hugs and kisses when I returned. Fortunately, I managed to capture this adorable moment on camera (thanks, Olive). I am so, incredibly thankful for my friend who cared for them while I was gone. I am actually bird sitting her two beautiful birds right now as she attends her 5 week ballet intensive. Kiwi and Olive were absolutely thrilled to see their best friends again, and I am so happy to have these lively visitors in my care.

I know it is a day late, but Happy Summer/Winter Solstice!

I also forgot to announce that I have completely redone my blog. The layout has changed drastically on the computer version, and I am super pleased with this new look! What do you guys think? I hope that you enjoyed this post! 🙂

A little late

the person who helps me when I fall

the person whose lap I use to crawl

the person who has supported me every since I was small

the person who has been there through it all

Mom.

I am so incredibly thankful to have you in my life. You mean more to me than I could ever put into words, and you have a very special place in my heart. I love you so much…

I know that it is a bit late, but I still wanted to wish all of those mothers out there (especially mine) a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
