Merry Christmas all! There’s nothing like the holidays to be close to loved ones, say thank you to all the special people in your life, eat and be merry. I’m spending time with family in Connecticut and about to start playing family games. I hope you all have a merry Christmas. As you probably can tell, I’ll only be able to update sporadically until the new year, in order to spend time with friends and family. Don’t worry, as Ill be back to talk New Years Resolutions! Be making your list, as I have a big one I’m working on. Here’s a christmas tree ornament of me when I was a wee-lass:
Merry Christmas… or Happy Sunday, if you don’t celebrate. I made it to CT in one piece and with enough time to celebrate.
This was taken fresh off of the red-eye. NYC in the morning.
After just missing the first bus, I waited for a second bus into Manhattan.
Then into Grand Central for the packed train ride to CT. I got home around 1:30p on Christmas Eve. After a lovely night of good food (crab cakes and baked stuffed clams, yum!) I wrapped gifts and caught some of The Sound Of Music with the family before I had to bid them ‘adieu. There will be a later post about Christmas when I upload my images, but lets just say that my family is so thoughtful and generous. Also, 2012 is going to kick-ass. I got new hiking boots, a sleeping pad, camping pillow, headlamp, a sleeping bag compression bag and seven free camping passes. I’m SO pumped for the new year.. so pumped. I also think Im ready to find a male camping companion… so if you know any single outdoorsy-men, send them my way 😉
Well, tomorrow I’m off to NYC for 2 days of fun. In the summer, when I went to NYC last, I came with a full list of activities and this time I’m going with nothing. But, I’m seeing good people and I’m confident enough that we will find fun things to do. I’ll of course recap it for you when I get back. After NYC I head right out to Cape Cod for a week of amazing New England adventures! I plan to break in my new hiking boots. Cape Cod may not have mountains but it’s awesome to hike in places so controlled by the tides. It really puts you in touch with nature. I’m signing off for the next 2 days!
