December Monthly News

Welcome to the December edition of monthly news! All moved and trying to get back to normal. Work life is good and I am happy. I have quite a commute now though. My 40th birthday was the 10th. I was stoked about it and hating it all-at-once. (I'm sure some of you ladies can relate. The rest of you spring chickens... wait! 😁)

Did nothing special, actually, I was alone. Hubby had to work. WahWah....
Christmas was not the same for me this year either. Life has a way of making holidays different as you get older. Thanksgiving and Easter have more meaning to me than Christmas now. What can I say?!
Wishing you all the best in 2017!
