Christmas was lovely but the couple hours we spent at David’s mom’s house exhausted me more than expected. I’m glad to start getting out of the house, but I have to remind myself to take things slowly. Thankfully slowly doesn’t have to mean spending all day on the couch. I can at least pick up my camera and do what I enjoy.
Next week my little sister and brother-in-law will be in town so we’ll do a late Christmas/New Year celebration. I’m definitely in need of some sister time.
