Since Jason and I are flying to Pennsylvania for Christmas, we decided to open our gifts to each other a little early. Our main reasoning was so we wouldn't have to bring extra gifts with us on the plane...that, and we didn't mind an early treat or two!
The cats really enjoyed their gifts of wrapping paper, tissue paper, and paper bags!
I've done so much knitting this Christmas that I've had to wear an Ace bandage for the past few days!
I think my knitting "all day, everyday" day's are over.
Things that have been on my mind lately.
Sorry I've disappeared for a few weeks.
Finals, wedding, holidays....you get the picture. ;)
I'm worried about finding a teaching job once I graduate from Grad School. So I'm thinking of adding a certification in Special Education or ESL (English as a Second Language), in addition to my History and Art History cert's.
My number one craft project right now is planning my wedding. I feel like every other craft that I've ever made up until this date has all been in training for this day. My Wedding = Craft Olympics.
Jason and I flew to Tampa a few weeks ago to visit my grandparents for my grandmother's 75th birthday. While we were in the air, I took a few shots of these bad boys from Detroit to Madison. I loved these clouds.
I love holidays, but Thanksgiving is extra special for me because it reminds me most of Jason. One of my happiest memories with Jason is of us dancing in our living room last year because we had four days off together for the first time ever. We were both over worked and exhausted, and I had pneumonia, but we were so happy that we had to dance.
I don't think Jason even remembers it, but it's one of my most treasured memories.
Thanksgiving is also the only holiday that we have already created our own family traditions. Baking my mom's cheese cake recipe together (and complaining the whole time about how we wish we had a mixer), making a beautiful vegetarian dinner all day, and watching It's A Wonderful Life before bed.
