Gift certificates!
Our Christmas was so nice. In the morning Ronald and I opened all the presents under the tree, and we gave lots of toys to the pups. My favorite gift is a leather refillable sketchbook that I have been wanting all year, it's so perfect and lovely, I can't wait to fill it with sketches!

We spent the afternoon with my in-laws. We watched movies and had a yummy simple dinner. It was relaxing which is just what we needed.

Today Ronald is back to work, and life returns to a bit of normalcy. I usually get really depressed Christmas night and the days after Christmas, but this year I really tried to keep my spirits up and although I am depressed, I didn't get the after Christmas blues which would have made things worse. So that's something.

How was your holiday? I hope it was dreamy and light, happy and restful.

  2. Pictures of you!!! You never have new pics of you! You look beautiful and like a real baker! ;)
    I saw Ronald has a tatt of your name on his arm! Awesome!
    That sounds nice.
    I have the holiday blues!!

  3. Yay! It's so good to actually see you. You seriously do look like a professional baker! =)
