A Very Merry Hello

The past few days have been a peaceful escape from reality.

I arrived at my parents' house last Friday night and haven't spent more than an hour on my computer. It's been wonderful.

There hasn't been anything too exciting going on. Hanging out with puppies. Eating delicious food. Watching basketball. Basically, I'm living the good life.

Christmas was a quiet day with just my immediate family. We purposefully had a smaller Christmas and it was nice to take the focus off things.

My parents did get us one big gift. I'm typing on my new Kindle Fire right now. I won't be trading in my laptop keyboard anytime soon but I am excited to have something smaller to travel with and a functional kindle (my old one froze a while ago and I haven't dealt with it yet).

I've also had the chance to catch up with some really good friends, who I haven't seen for months even though I come back home regularly. All in all I've made the most of my Christmas break.

I plan to be back to more regular posting shortly but first I'm going to soak up as much of my vacation as possible.

How has your Christmas been? Have you had much of a break from life?


  1. I bought my mom a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I am lusting after it now. It's so purty! :)

    I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year!

  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas! I wish I got more of a break but I had to be back at work first thing Wednesday morning. :-(

  4. I'm glad you have a lovely christmas.

  5. I took an unexpected break as well and it was nice to unplug a bit. I'm glad you had a wonderful Christmas and here's to the new year!
