I realize this is not being posted in the morning, but life has been busy.
The past month I really enjoyed getting to spend time with my family and friends. Between everyone coming here to New York state to celebrate with us and having a reception in New Orleans with my partner’s side of our family, I am cherishing those moments because it will be a while before it happens again. This will be my first holiday season without going to St. Louis… it will be different. No Christmas Eve dinner with my family or cookies and eggnog toasts on Christmas morning.
However, I was reminded this past week that I have some pretty great, new friendships here. I love hanging out with 2 of my coworkers and I made a friend from the job I had temporarily back in June/July. And this past week while we were with family in New Orleans, my coworker was so kind to stop by our place and grab packages that were left on our door step. 🙂 I am looking forward to hanging out with these folks and hopefully I get to video chat with my family 🙂
