We've officially entered the final countdown to Christmas! Last week seemed to be the busiest between design work, holiday shopping, meeting with friends, puppy training, and life in general. I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks, honestly. While I do enjoy this time of year for all its festivities and excitement, I look forward to my end-of-year-break from the busy schedules. The only things I've planned for next week, are regular soaks in my tub and catching up on some reading. Until then, here are some bits from last week (or so).
