Holiday Season 2016

The past two months have been full of struggle and joy.  A very hard decision to turn down a move from NH, grieving a big loss for dear friends, riding out the normal ups and downs of deep relationships... all mixed in with sweet holiday times with friends & family, and amazing long weekend away in Quebec city, and just the regular days.  Today I'm sitting by the Christmas tree as the snow swirls outside and breathing a little.

Fun with kids

Thanksgiving in MA

A 48 hour trip to TX for Megan's dad's funeral.  A heartbreaking reason to visit, yet at the same time a gift to see a dear friend's family and place, and to honor a life well lived.

Quebec Trip - A perfect fun and restful three days in this beautiful place for just the two of us... so good for our souls and our French!
