and try to keep it all the year.
My blog feed is chock full of year-in-review and resolution posts, yet I am just getting around to Christmas. I find this delay acceptable only because this particular Christmas break is determined to stick around. A large winter storm has provided a couple more blissful days spent as a family. I'm not complaining; the ability to delay our return to real life is a gift.
Christmas was mellow this year. There were less presents under the tree, yet the holiday was decidedly more fulfilling. This was our first year getting back to basics. Following a budget. Excusing ourselves from the lunacy. Reflecting on that is a post in and of itself. One which I will write about in the coming week.
In the meantime, here are just a few of the moments captured over the course of this rather lovely day.
