(12/21/16) Happy Winter Solstice! It's been a while since I've been here, as I've been hibernating for the past month or so. Christmas and Hanukkah are almost here for those who celebrate them. We're a Christmas family, complete with an Elf on the Shelf named Jingles. All is good. I hope the season is treating you well and that you have some time to yourself to reflect on the blessings in life. I know I have to be reminded to do so. Merry holidays!
