Happy Holidays!

Hello my Friends! 

I've missed you all. I hope you're having a wonderfully blessed holiday season so far. 🎄  I know it's crunch time now. But I wanted to take a minute to pop in and share a bit of what's been going on here in the northwoods and give a bit of an update. I meant to continue blogging over the holiday season, but life felt a bit overwhelming with Annie's hockey season extra busy this year. She plays JV and has been suiting up for varsity too and playing a little of it. So it's been extra practices for her then too. Since my ex has been less involved and he has struggled to want to be part of anything holiday, I have been mostly handling all of the holiday efforts around home and our families (& gifts etc). I still want the holidays special and so I have been getting it all done. 😊 
But I have also felt more joy for the first Christmas season in years, because I have a special friend in my life right now. ♥️  He is in law enforcement in a different state and with a different time zone, so it gets challenging at times. Extra time or efforts I have are also spent to communicate with him. He is currently working to get back to my area, as he grew up not too far from here. 

I am looking forward to the weeks ahead to share with family and friends. To share in good food, laughter, and love. And for me it's about remembering the baby born so long ago to save us all. He is always my reason for the season. 🌟  May you have a blessed Christmas and wishing you all joy and peace in 2020. I will be back to blogland after the holidays.
