have always been my most stressful periods in life. I therefore have spent an entirely inappropriate amount of my energy and time trying to avoid the holidays. The past few years it has been different. It isn’t that I am participating in the festivities but I am making more trips home to be with family….
in Oklahoma and the weather has been unseasonably warm, visits with friends have been wonderful and revisiting favorite restaurants has been delightfully yummy although not great for my waistline. I head to Indiana tomorrow to spend time with my brother as well as my parents and I am really excited to see them…all of them….
