Home for the Holidays!

I'm done with finals and I'm home for 5 weeks off from college! And, it feels great!

During this holiday break, I'm going to try to cut back on computer time in order that I can spend a lot of time with my family and do other things I've missed, like cooking, reading books, sewing, hopefully writing more, and so on. I've been spending too much time online lately and grown somewhat tired of the computer after all the school-related stuff I've had to do on it for sometimes hours a day. So, I'm looking forward to this break to relax and hopefully cut back on dependence on the internet. I'll still be around and hopefully blog quite a bit, but I'm trying not to waste so much time just browsing online.

Now that I'm home, it's beginning to feel like the holidays are actually here! The college was decorated for Christmas a few weeks before Thanksgiving, but now that I'm back in my own home with the familiar decorations, it's truly beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. It's a wonderful feeling to be back home and I'm looking forward to when my two college siblings come home (at the end of this week!), spending Christmas at home, and having married siblings come and visit soon after Christmas.

What are you doing for the holidays?

Yippee!! You're home! Not that I will get to see you, but Miriam will =)

The house isn't decorated yet. But I have begun the present shopping. And it will be a quiet, rest filled holiday. Which is good!

We'll be relaxing during the holidays just enjoying the time with our family. The kids grow up so fast. It will be nice to just have some time with them without school or travels.
love you,
Michele

I know you are thrilled to be home! I can't imagine spending that much time away from my family....

We are spending Christmas week in DC. My Dad is helping broadcast the service at the National Cathedral, and we are going with him. This is the first year that we will be away from home over Christmas.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!

How nice that you are home! And for five weeks!

We will stay at home in Nashville for Christmas. My grandparents live nearby so they will come and spend the night Christmas Eve. I love Christmas! It seems more like the holiday season as we got two inches of snow today!

P.S. I got my first Bloom! mag today! Thank you so much for that recommendation!
