Since the blog and online world in general will likely be taking a breather - both in writing and reading - it is probably time to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Festive Kwanzaa, Joyous Festivus or whatever you do/do not celebrate... but Happy New Year (at least that one applies to everyone!).
While the stresses of the holiday season often seem to get the best of us, it really is if not the most wonderful... at least one of more special... times of the year.
We're having a nice quite Christmas here. We celebrated the holiday with Todd's parents this past Sunday. As I type, the ingredients for our traditional Christmas Eve meal of posole (a spicy and savory Southwestern pork stew) is simmering on the stove and we plan on getting together with some friends for the holiday tomorrow.
I hope this finds you spending time with the ones you love, either near or far.
