Happy New Year!

Wow!  How time has flown... and BOY - I have become LAZY with this blog. 

We are currently in the midst of a three week vacation and road trip that includes stops in Black Butte (central Oregon), Yosemite National Park, Palm Desert, Disneyland, and, hopefully, some funky little California coastal towns. 

Having a one-and-a-half-year-old and almost-three-year-old means that we are always busy. 

With that being said, I am going to take a break from posting (clearly... I have already done this) until about mid-February.  I anticipate having a lot of exciting things to share that are relevant to this blog. 

Hang in there!!

Happy New Year!
