Creeping Back…

…to reality. That’s what today is all about. Is anyone else mourning the holidays? I love fresh starts and I’m very much looking forward to 2013, but something about the first day back to the routine is hard. Like really hard. I’ve been dreading the daily grind for the last few days. And that’s probably because for the past week, I spent as much time as I could in red thermal pajamas, doing this…

The couch and I had a hot date. I hadn’t really sat down for the last few months, so I tried to catch up on some much needed R&R.

I also got some snuggles in with my sweet niece, Bryn…

Opened a few gifts (these handwritten tags killed me!)…

And as you know, we have countertops now, so I began to unpack some of our kitchen goodies. Two boxes down, only 20 more to go! We are so, so close to a finished kitchen, and I can’t wait to unveil our first renovation project on our “new” house in a few weeks:).

Hoping everyone had a lovely holiday and here’s to hoping reality is nice to us on the first day back it!
