Two things really made me take this long break.
1) The Sandy Hook tragedy really hit home to me. No, I don't know anybody there personally, but this horrendous event just struck that tender chord in my heart being a mom myself of a kid the same age as most of the victims. I just felt I had to let my feelings out by being "silent" for awhile.
2) The holidays have been extra busy for us this year too with family and friends coming in and out of our home. A very welcoming type of "work" that me and my family are still enjoying.
I did not want to end the year on a sad note. So to finish it off, I'm sharing the the extras of my Christmas decorating adventures this year...
