Things are better. Circumstances haven't changed, but my approach and attitude have.
I am looking forward to Paris and excited to visit Europe for the first time. We'll be visiting not only France but Belgium and England as well.
We just booked our reservations for Greece and Italy for Nov 2009 and I'm pretty thrilled about that as well. I am so amazed at how far Jonathan has come in his enthusiasm for travel- this was my man who once said he saw no reason to ever leave North America.
This holiday season has been quite a whirlwind with travel, work, and social activities. I took some time to slow down last weekend and spent the whole day on Sat baking with my best friends. We made 11 different types of cookies/pies/breads and split the whole lot before heading home. I am blessed to have such wonderful friends who are so supportive.
I'll blog about the Vegas trip [including my review of Thunder down Under] when I return from Europe after the New Year.
And now, for the next two days, I will work on centering my thoughts on the reason for the season: Christ.
Merry Christmas everyone!
