Release the Hounds

Four week break from school.

No driving the girls to classes and tutors.

Christmas shopping, baking, and gift wrapping completed.

Decorations up - so pretty!

Time. Regimen free.

An offering of contemplation.

Moments to fill with my best friend and our kids.

Sam - Joe's Christmas gift four years ago. A Christmas dog. Playful.

Today is the first day of the rest of my....Christmas Holiday.

Don't spend it all in one place.

Spirits higher this morning.

Sleep helps.

Freedom.

Sunshine.

This body needs to get into motion - this Me body.

Whoosh...

Yes, we're on the home-straight now, and it's Cherie in the lead;-)
I like the fact it falls just after the weekend- it kind of makes it seem longer.

Cherie said...

Sean, you made me laugh! And yes, it will be a good long Christmas weekend.

L., - "I'd like to thank my manager, my hairstylist, makeup artist, my husband, my parents....and God!" Seriously, thanks. I think the little kid in me takes over right about this time every year.
