My husband is very reluctant to take time off from work, so I feel so blessed to have been able to spend four lovely days with him this week! He is a wonderful musician and received an amp head and a switch pedal (I am not, so I'm certain that my terminology is off!) for Christmas. So...I guess it was only natural for him to lock himself away to fiddle on his guitar. Ugh...
Though, last night we had an exciting night and caught a really good local band. While I adore my daughter and all of the time we spend together, it is nice to be able to head out as adults!
We also stopped by American Apparel and picked out one rocking dress that I think i'm planning on wearing for New Years. More to come...

Our family had a super beautiful Christmas. I would say that this is the first year where our daughter really "gets" Christmas. Last year, she was basically oblivious to the whole thing, but this year...boy oh boy! She wasn't enthralled with the boxes like other baby stories I've heard. She really did enjoy all of her new toys and paraded around the house all day wearing the little apron and cape that Yaya made for her. My mother also made a beautiful waldorf doll. It was on my Christmas list for our daughter and I couldn't be more pleased. I'll upload pictures soon. She's GORGEOUS and I am so proud of my mom and her talents. I can't believe she pulled it off on her very first dollmaking attempt. That said, she is a perfectionist and a wonderful seamstress!
