"The room was very still while the pages were softly turned and
the winter crept in with a Christmas greeting." ~ Louisa May Alcott
Happy first day of winter, friends. It's a frosty one here this morning, with me in my slippers and a mug of coffee warming my hands. There is much packing to me done yet as I leave for a few days to see my family and I couldn't be more excited. From what I hear, my nieces want my assistance in building a snow fort, and are addicted to UNO, so I know what I'll be doing upon my arrival. These are the best days, when all that really matters is just being together with those who love the bones off you. As their little hands clasp mine, leading me to the piled up snow, that will be the best gift right there.
