I think the last time I sat down with you guys and caught up over coffee was sometime in April, which quite frankly, is unacceptable. So take a seat, grab a cuppa, and let's chat.
This weekend, I was asleep more hours than I was awake, had zero alarms set, watched Elf, The Holiday, and Mansfield Park, fueled up on multiple mugs of hot cocoa, feasted on my favorite takeout breakfast, and snuggled up with a dog as the rain pittered and pattered against our skylights. That's about it. And I'll tell you what: these busy (not-so-busy, actually) nothings had me positively giddy.
What with getting up to no good in San Francisco with friends last week, and the two weekends before that in LA and Seattle, a flight to Houston in a couple of days, and then a trip to China for the new year, I cherished this weekend o' nothingness like you wouldn't believe.
Christmas is going to be a lowkey one for my family this year. My sister's off on her honeymoon in Thailand and Bali, and so I'll be settling in at my parents' with a couple of books, my mama's cookin', and a list of to-do's that have long been on the backburner that I'd like to check off. Things like, a blog refresh, figuring out budgeting (wtf???), and a couple of work tasks too. Oh, and! Finally finishing up my Europe recaps. I've left off at Plitvice Lakes, Croatia but still have lots of good stuff to share with you: Dubrovnik, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Greece.
You see, these are likely the most meaningful chapters from this summer's travels, but I couldn't quite figure out the right way to properly share them with you. And then the more that time went by, the harder it became to remember the details, and that's become a whole new challenge altogether. But it's gonna happen, my friends!
Now tell me... How have you been? What are your holiday plans? Do you have resolutions written up yet?
