Very merry


If you celebrate Christmas, I hope yours was as fantastic as ours. Our marathon celebration started with family on Sunday and wrapped up last night, and included lots of time with my nephew Nathan (J enjoyed playing with Nathan's Thomas trains possibly more than Nathan), a Christmas Eve performance of A Christmas Carol at Portland Stage Company (perhaps a new tradition?), Christmas Eve candlelight service at a new church, a Red Sox Monopoly game into the wee hours of the night (congrats J) and, of course, a very generous visit from St. Nick. I received many lovely gifts, several of which were inspired from posts on the blog (here, here and here) and my business colors of pink and chocolate brown. Fun! I am very tired, and very blessed.
