My oldest daughter Markie is always the one who puts the angel on top of our tree. This year both girls were home- 23 and 26. We still do the same traditions, and there are a few new ones as well.
Tomorrow is New Years Day and Markie will take the train back to NYC. Maddie leaves on the 5th to return to Nashville for her second semester of grad school. Sigh. Al, Winnie and I will keep the home fires burning and enjoy our memories, and look forward to the next time we gather together.
I have decided not to do the 30 in 30 challenge this January- nothing is really resonating in me theme wise, I want to see what happens on its own-after a rest.
Happy New Year to you all!
