tis the season to be jolly


Bonjour lundi! 

This may be the first Monday, in the history of Mondays that I've ever been happy to see, and the reason for my happiness; Gregory will be here in only two more sleeps! I can hardly believe it! He's going to be here for four whole weeks, and while that isn't forever, it's a start.

Here's the thing though, yesterday, as I trimmed the tree, I started panicking a bit about my blog. I had planned on getting loads of posts written and scheduled before Gregory got here so I could spend as much time with him as possible and dutifully stick to my blog calendar and the Monday, Wednesday, Friday rhythm that I've had going on here since I came back in October. But decking the halls took much longer than expected (I'm not complaining, I love a good decking) and not a single word was written.

And then last night I thought to myself, calendar, schmalender, it's Christmastime for Santa's sake! I haven't seen my husband since July and I want to live in every single second of every minute of every hour, of every day of each of the four weeks he's here, and if that means I don't get a blog post, posted, then so be it, so I guess I'm taking another blogging break of sorts.

But since it's impossible for me to completely disappear from y'all lives (nobody gets off that easily), I'll be checking in on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram fairy regularly I'm sure, to splash bits of our holiday cheer about and I'd love it if you popped by to say hi. (I'm going to attempt to film the Fifty, Gregory reunion and you're not going to want to miss that!)

Before I go, I just have to say, thank you. Thank you, to all of you. The love, support, and friendship that you continue to give me is beyond measure. Really, and truly, you're the best blog buddies on the block and I am grateful for y'all. Oy vey! Listen me go on, I'm gonna get all verklempt.

Holiday wishes and kisses to you and yours from the three of us!

Joyeuses fêtes et bonne année!

  13. Oh, yay! Four whole weeks together! :) I wish it were longer, for your sake, but at least he'll be here for Christmas and NYE! I think I'll be cutting back on blog posts during the holidays, too. I'd rather enjoy the month than stress myself out trying to post 3 times a week! Happy Christmas, my friend!

    Blogging is about our personal experiences right? And yours is spending mucho time with your honey bunny! I thought about you yesterday because one of my students is from France and his mom gave me some French magazines yesterday! So excited to reacquaint myself with the french language! I hope you have a very very Merry Christmas and a wonderful and peaceful New Year! Tammy x
