We've been travelling a lot lately, and just spent a lovely, relaxing weekend in Karlsruhe in the south of Germany. I don't remember a time where I've played so many board games. Thanks E. and T. for being such wonderful hosts!

I've never really used this blog as a forum to vent, but I've been feeling the crunch lately. I know that the beginning of a new year is all about turning over a new leaf and excitement for what is to come, but I have been feeling totally overwhelmed and as a result haven't felt like this new year is off to such a fresh start.
I'm not sure how other Moms juggle their children and all of the other things that they have going on in their lives. Most of the time it seems like many of you out there in blogland do a wonderful breezy job of it. I've been finding it hard to get to my projects, which other than spending time with my family and friends are some of the things that really make me feel good in life. I have to go back to work, after having a wonderful year off, at the beginning of February. I'm both fearing it and looking forward to the structure of it all. I have a feeling though that the structure will be good and I'll be more effective in organizing my time.

Anyway, I appreciate that there are people out there that have stuck with this blog through the sparse posting. I really really hope to be more active this year, and I have many new projects floating around in my head that I'll want to share with you once they come into fruition.

Here are a bunch of random photos that I didn't get a chance to post over the holidays. I hope you enjoy them.

Happy Wednesday.


Happy New Years!! The end of the year really snuck up on me and now 2012 is here. We had a lot of fun spending time with family and friends over the holidays, and even had a small birthday soirée for the little love of our lives.

Time is going by so fast and I've been having a very hard time keeping up with this blogging thing. I'm not prepared to let it go yet though.

Wishing you all the best in this new year, and hopefully you'll see more regular posting from me!

Happy Monday.
