Loved this book and the way that everything was tied together at the end. Plus there is a chapter called Bars. Why would you not read this book?

From TBA... to Being Here

I missed this space. I stopped by to grab a photo for my parent's anniversary project, and read over some of my old posts. I like it! If only for me, so be it! Lots of things for me to put down in this space, even though blogging is not the way to go these days. I'm okay with it. A new chapter in my life, instead of waiting for the next adventure, I want to embrace being here now; something that I have always struggled with. Time has taught me that this is one big, messy, complicated, beautiful, adventure. I can't wait to move on to the next thing, I need to embrace the now, the right here, the current circumstances and situations, and make it happy, and fun and light. I feel like that past few years, I lost myself. A big reason for this was waiting for something to come along. Well, no longer. I'm going to be here now.

And what a place to be! We moved to the Tetons! We have a crazy, sweet, loving dog that we rescued, I'm seeing my friends from 7 years ago...and they're still as awesome as ever! I'm making new friends and goals, and dreaming up new dreams. I'm excited for being here.

9 reasons to go home for Christmas

The 9 reasons are the people (sappy, but so true), 9 people that I dearly love and miss on a daily basis.

If you have a fancy camera, you may as well take a photo of your 10 year old nephew, and make sure to capture the peas. That's important.

Man-friend captured the heart of my nephew and niece. He built them a blanket fort, and the password that the kiddos made up was "Daniel is awesome" with no prompting from the fort-builder himself. I think he wins this Christmas!

Everyone and the cranberry salad! Minus Cheryl, who was unfortunately ill.

Mom: "Okay, get it out of your system so you can smile nice."

Merry Christmas everyone!
