oh, hello 2011

Oh, hello 2011! Nice to finally see you!
I pondered blogging yesterday but then I would have felt this inner pressure to keep doing every day to see if I could blog 70, 80, 90, 100 days in a row - and I don't need to put anyone through that. You guys OR myself. So I took a much-needed day off yesterday.

Since I've been spending so much time being reflective around these parts, I didn't really have a chance to say how much I've enjoyed this week off of work - 10 days is a good, long time to be absent from the office, and we've had lots of fun - from the festivities on Christmas Eve and Christmas, to day trips to UConn to see the horses, cows and sheep and Newport to visit the beach in the winter - plus lots of down time just hanging around, watching TV, reading, napping. Oh, and we shoveled our way out of the first big snowstorm of the year. Yesterday we hosted Relaxapalooza - a New Year's Day party I plan to make an annual event. Super low-key, snacks and desserts, lots of friends and lots of laughs. Not a bad start for a year in which my most important resolution is to have fun, huh?

Here's some pics from the past week. See you soon!

The face of the guy opening the Dora box? Priceless.
Someone said on twitter the other day if the people who packaged toys were in charge of Homeland Security we'd have nothing to worry about.

Merry 2011.
