I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Eve celebrations. If you're anything like me, though, I bet you're really glad that it's all behind us and we can get back to our normal lives. Or is that just me? I love the celebrations and getting together with family and such, but it's so exhausting. After six family get together, stuffing myself silly more times than I can count, and eleven days of my husband being off from work (he took a few vacation days), I'm ready for a rest! I almost didn't write this blog post because all I really want to do now is sew!
But here I am! Since I have holiday hangover, how about I just show pictures this week? I promise to be more alive next Wednesday :)
