(posting early today as I'm hitting the road for a short New Year's Eve get-away. disclaimer: vicious attack dogs and large-sized humans will still be occupying my house.)
This was a bittersweet Christmas for me. The last Christmas where it will be just the five of us. We will increase by two next year. Holidays will have to be shared, and traditions altered. I am blessed our family is growing, that we love our new additions, and that my Things are happy. I'm just not good at sharing, and will have to learn to refine that talent. I want my Things to chase their dreams, but to always know the road that leads them home. Especially for the holidays.
"There's no place like home for the holidays,
'cause no matter how far away you roam...
...if you want to be happy in a million ways
...for the holidays you can't beat
home sweet home."
- (no place like) Home for the Holidays
There's always a road that leads towards home.

Thank you for embracing Song-ography in 2013.
