Time Is The Longest Distance

I can’t believe that we just landed in Minneapolis on Monday night. I think I have slept for exactly five hours since we deplaned!

We have been so busy.

The boy had back-to-back sleepovers at his best friend’s house. He built forts in the living room, went sledding down the hill, went to fifth grade at his old school and ran errands like old times! He did not sleep and ate nothing but Chipotle!

I went to Manicures with my fairy god daughter (her nails look lovely by the way)….

I am so grateful for all of our friends. They are wonderful.

Everyone made an effort to see us: from bring babies out in the cold, to rearranging schedules and lessons, people made it work!

We were so happy.

The holidays are so busy. It was awesome to see the people most important to us, even if it was just for a little while!! The boy and I agreed, we are blessed and lucky!
