Around Thanksgiving I told myself I was not allowed to post anything until after I sent out all of my Christmas cards. Every year, I notoriously finish drawing my annual letter around Turkey Day, and then end up mailing it closer to Valentine’s Day. At this point, four years into being all adult and sending Christmas cards, the timeline is as much a tradition as the card itself.
That being said, last week I mailed the last installment of Christmas cards on my list. I am still behind as far as national standards go, but ahead for my average. I blame my husband for making me a more punctual person.
I could attribute my self-imposed deadline as a reason for not updating in so long, but that would not be an entire truth. The entire truth would be that I have been so busy that when I have half-an-hour to make an entry, all I want to do is sit on my couch with my cat and my husband and drink wine. To make up for the last two months, I am going to make this much more fun for everyone and catch up with pictures. Because, you know, everything is better with pictures (or so I learned from my middle school blogging days)

Back in LA I hit work full swing with my two Snickerdoodles, A (age 6) and S (age 3). We had a lot of adventures together before school got started again. They include, but were not limited to the following:
BACK AT HOME:
So Happy New Year! and here is to hoping that I am better about posting things in the future.
Don’t get your hopes up.
