christmas in new england.
this post is a little late, but even so, i want to write something about my favorite holiday.
this year the reedy clan drove from chicago to new england. and while sitting in the car for four days (2 there, 2 back) isn't exactly my idea of a hootin' hollerin' good time, the long journey was most definitely worth the time we got to spend with family and friends.
last christmas was spent just the three of us (me, hubs, bully) in our chilly little chicago apartment. it was nice, but it was a little sad to spend the holiday away from family for the first time. jim and i both grew up in massachusetts so this christmas seemed extra special--lots of family time, lots of nice visits with friends, lots of yummy food, lots of sleeping in, and lots of being lazy.
we're back in chicago now and back to the grind. 2012 will be a good year for us, i can feel it in my ferragamo clad toes!
