1. PEOPLE! I will take a rest day!
2. Due to work schedules, new puppies, and a seriously low tolerance for traffic, we aren't traveling for the holidays this year. Which likely marks the first time in 12 years that I haven't spent a significant amount of time either in a car or an airport (or both) in order to celebrate Christmas. I almost don't know what to do with myself. We have big plans to stay in our pjs all day, cook a big dinner, and just generally relax and enjoy the holiday.
3. I've been thinking, this month, about how different my life was a year ago. Every once in a while I get a glimpse back, and almost everything has changed - for the better. And for that, I am thankful.
