Today is Monday, which means it’s been four days since Thanksgiving, but it feels like it’s been a month! A month of awesomeness, to be sure, especially because it was also filled to the brim with activities that involved family. But I would really love another weekend to recover from this past one. This is how the holidays go, though, and you just gotta dive in, knowing that you will probably come up exhausted at the other end...because the time you get to spend with those loved ones is worth it.

We went down to Virginia Beach for a couple of days to visit with K’s family, and then we came back up to Richmond to meet my sisters and celebrate a birthday. I will probably share a few photos from what went down this past weekend over the next few days, but for now, I leave you with a photo of our little dragon.  She slept wonderfully when we were in VA Beach, but when we came back home, she decided that she would stay up all night, two nights in a row, getting herself all worked up. It was rough, and my body may or may not have tried to shut itself down at one point, but the morning after the second night, she fell asleep in our bed with my hand on her stomach. We lay there like that for about an hour. She would wake up suddenly to make sure my hand was there and then fall asleep again. It was sweet, soothed my weariness, and somehow, made those long nights totally worth it.
