I wanted to take the time to wish my husband a very Happy Birthday!!
We had a great dinner last night and it was really nice to get to spend some time with him. You see, December is without a doubt the most hectic months of the year for our family. His birthday is today, RJ's birthday is the 22nd and then we have Christmas and all the holiday stuff that comes with that. On top of that, Ron is in his 3rd year of law school and is in the midst of finals, so he's really busy with that.
Don't get me wrong - I am not complaining. I love the holidays and all the festivites and time with family and friends. And this has been a time of great reflection for me. I've spent a long time reflecting on the year and planning for next year.
We have put up our tree and decorated the house, so we are very much in the holiday spirit. And to make things even more festive, we got an inch of sticky, beautiful snow last night. It has covered the earth in a beautiful white blanket and looks just great. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I hate the cold. I am legitimately allergic to cold - my hands blow up like balloons if I don't keep them covered. BUT I love the look and feel that a beautiful inch of snow can give. So I brought my camera out and took a few images to share.
