It's Monday and it's been a long week...


Hello everyone! I hope your Thanksgivinga and Hanukkahs were wonderful. We had a good time here celebrating Thanksgiving with some family and then rounding out the weekend with a visit to the other side of the family, some Christmas decorating, and celebrating with my parents as they renewed their vows after 30 years of marriage. We have also lost two teeth this week (David) and discovered a serious passion for cranberry sauce (Becca Grace).

    1. I think we spend a lot of time discussing how we are drawn to beautiful covers and not enough time talking about the effect of a perfect title!
