i've been asking everyone what their favorite Christmas present was. maybe i'll ask customers that today; people seem to be crabby, maybe because of the weather. maybe that would cheer people up. or at least open the door to somewhat more real conversation.
my favorite present was a painting. artist? my brother-in-law. it's one i've had my eye on for quite some time. and it's just beautiful. it's now hanging over our couch, and i couldn't be a prouder sister-in-law. :)
we're starting off the new year pretty well.. Matt has an interview next week. it's something completely different than anything he's ever done. and it will completely change our lives if he gets it! i'm excited to see what will happen in the coming months. it's been so obvious that God has been preparing us for something big. now it's just waiting to see what that something is.
Stephie stayed with us Christmas Eve weekend. it was so good to have her here.
will you move back??? i miss our times together. they're just so few and far between these days. it's better than nothing, that's for sure. but i do miss you.
