It's been a long time since we have put up a post. Frankly, I've missed the blog. We were away from it for good reasons (work, life, yada, yada), but I find that I really do miss the outlet and the connection with others. So, I'm back. Hello! How have you been? Let's catch up!
Here's what we have been up to lately.
The holiday celebrations have been fantastic and hectic. Both of us started new jobs this year so we hadn't accrued much time off. Fortunately, I work remotely and just need an internet connection (and some peace & quiet) and Serial was able to get a few days here and there. So we made the best of it and squeezed in family time whenever we could.
Right before Christmas, I flew back to Chicago for a super quick visit and soaked up some time with my brother and parents. Then I flew home to NC on Christmas eve to spend Christmas day with Serial and Rooney. We went for a hike (it was a gorgeous day) and lounged on the couch with movies and good food.
After a few quick days of work, Serial's parents came to stay with us for the weekend after the holiday and we got to extend the Christmas celebration for a few more days. It has been a whirlwind of a holiday season, but oh so worth it to see the people we care about.
Predictably, one of my resolutions is to blog more. I've even got a planner notebook and some structure around it. Organization for the win. I'll share the rest of my resolutions in the coming days. Until then, Happy New Years, friends!
