~~Christmas 2009 was great. It was so nice to have time to simply be together as a family!
This year a big snow storm blew in on Christmas Eve and literally confined us to the house. We played games, baked cookies, and had no choice but to relax. :) When I realized that I was out of an ingredient I needed, Dustin bundled himself up and ran three blocks to the grocery store since our vehicles were buried in the snow. (Did I mention that we were in the middle of a blizzard?!)
~~On Christmas day we were able to un-bury the car and cautiously make our way to my parent's home in the morning and Dustin's parent's in the evening. Thankfully both of our families live fairly close.
~~Christmas break went by much too quickly and I was sad when it was time for the girls to go back to school and Dustin back to work. I enjoyed hibernating in with my family and taking a break from technology. There were a lot of card games, hot chocolate, wii, gingerbread cookies, and bonding and it was wonderful.
~~I've been spending a lot of time thinking about this brand new year and my goals. I love the feeling of a fresh beginning that the new year brings!
~~I just want to thank each and every one of you who stop by and share this journey with me. I know that my blogging has been pretty inconsistent lately and there are a few reasons for that. I truly appreciate the friendships I've made here and the encouragement that I've received. You all mean so much!
I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed.
