New Year Musings and a Word for 2022
Happy New Year, friends!! I don’t know if it’s the fact that my kids just went back to school after an insanely long 3.5-week winter break, or the fact that we are entering our third year of pandemic life, but so far this January, I just feel tired. (Unlike my kids, which - as evidenced by this photo - are fully of nonstop energy!).
We had a really sweet time celebrating Christmas and Evie’s birthday with my family (who traveled from Virginia and California to be together at my parents’ house in Brentwood). The kids got to play with their cousins, which was really fun. Mostly, I cooked lots of meals (and cleaned lots of messes!), baked cookies and played hide and seek with the kids, watched movies (Frozen II and Encanto are current favorites) and during our unexpected snowstorm this past week, we sledded and played in the snow. It was wonderful and exhausting and everything in between. Ha.
