Happy New Year!

Happy new year, friends!  Wishing love and happiness for all of you in the coming year.

The holidays have been relaxing and quiet this year. Our whole family was unable to be together this time around, which always puts a damper on the festivities, but we made the best of it.

We were also treated to a Christmas night blizzard, followed by a second snowstorm a couple days later.

{A view of my block, after several days of melting!}

In a freak twist of nature, Indy got absolutely no snow whatsoever last year, so it was kind of a shock when we got a foot in one day!

Consequently, we avoided most of the post-holiday shopping frenzy and instead huddled up in the house, cuddling, napping, and watching movies. Gus demonstrates:

My parents also welcomed a new family member...who happens to have a raging case of puppy breath:

Her name is Sophie, and she can go from precious and innocent to googly-eyed monster of mischief in 2.5 seconds.

We love her anyway. :)

To welcome the new year, I'm staying in, giving the house a good cleaning, doing a bit of reflecting on the eventful year that's passed, and setting some goals for the one that's beginning. And maybe watching a Roseanne marathon on cable. (Don't judge!)

How are you passing this first day of 2013?



  1. Happy New Year and welcome to your new furry friend!

  2. That pup! So cute. Happy New Year!

  3. Happy new year, Heather - your new puppy is a cutie!
