I hope you guys all had a happy, happy holiday! Husband and I made our biennial pilgrimage back to my homeland (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) for Christmas this year and it was a fun, festive little time. We drove up to Minneapolis for a day to visit a dear friend and her adorable one-year-old baby-monster:
And then we spent the rest of the time eating, chilling with family, stuffing cupcakes into our mouths, binge-watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, playing with LEGO’s, trying to not ruin my twin sister’s cool new kitchen floors, more eating, more chilling, and voila:
One of the best parts (and best gifts) of the trip, however, was simply spending some time with my gramma. She’s now 84-years old, and so we spent some time on this trip sorting through old photos that she wanted my twin sister and me to have. It was bittersweet (there’s a reason why she’s giving away her things, after all, and it isn’t because she’s about to become a buddhist monk or cloistered nun) (although as Sister Squirrelpants she’d totally be the best and funniest one), but I am still so glad we got to do it. I brought a lot of great photos of both her and my mom back to Colorado that I will cherish forever. It was a really good time, and it always goes by way too fast.
Happy (almost) New Year, you guys!
