Christmas is over and we are headed into the New Year. Despite having a sick Addison, we had a wonderful Christmas. The girls woke up with squeals of excitement over the gifts that Santa left.

Even if it is at the buttcrack of dawn lol!!!
I have spent the better part of the week tending to Addison (who is still sick) and organizing/de-cluttering the house.

I like how it makes me feel to have my house back in order, even if it doesn't last too terribly long lol!

Before I sign off, I want to share a recent Garden layout (and my very last one)
