Tonight I am thankful that Dan is enjoying a long reading time with the girls (Return of the King), giving me some quiet and stillness in my evening.
Many of you are preparing to travel to family and friends this week, or are readying your homes for guests. We were a bit ahead of the holiday curve and hosted both family and friends this past week and are now looking at a quiet stretch for the month of holidays.
The last few days we spent with wonderful friends from Virginia. It is reassuring and warming to me to realize how many times we've been together since our move, 3 years ago (at least seven times, though I might be missing one or two in my count!).
