These past few months have turned out to be crazy busy for us, partly for normal reasons (Thanksgiving, wedding travel, pre Christmas insanity), but we have also taken two unexpected trips at the last minute. Several weeks ago, my sweet 94 year old Grandfather died, so we took a trip to North Carolina to be with friends and family and to celebrate his remarkable life. Then just this past Friday we got a call that Jady's spunky, wonderful 90 year old Grandmother had also died, so we packed up for a trip down to Louisiana to honor her and grieve with family. Both of these losses didn't exactly come as a surprise, but we still felt the shock of missing them and gratitude for their love and guidance over all of these years.
This fall/winter has already been such a meaningful, precious time with both sides of our families, and we're so thankful for that. It has also been pretty grueling with the extra travel and some quick turn arounds, and it's no surprise that Jady, Lindsay and I ALL ended up sick! I have been totally knocked out by whatever this is, so I'm basically being forced to take it easy and lie around in bed all day (which sounds much more luxurious than it actually is, turns out).
This lady may have actually had the right idea for airport travel...
Thanks for your patience while I recuperate, and I'll be dreaming up some new projects for us for the new year!
