Ahhhh......that feels better!

Letting out some happy sighs here.

Now for confession time..... Until the holidays, I had not told any of my family (not including Hubby & our kidlets, of course) or friends that I've grown up with that I was blogging. A few friends found me here, but I hadn't actually told anyone. And as the year flew by, I knew I would share at Christmas. But, at that time I still didn't have a header and it felt kind of silly to not have one in place by then.

So, after midnight on Christmas Eve, I found myself scrambling, looking at stock photos and trying to come up with something at the last minute. Sleep finally called. In the end, I found a photo that I tweaked between seeing what Santa had left in our stockings, cleaning up the mountain of wrapping paper, getting everyone dressed, and setting the dining table for my Mom and inlaws, who were coming in a couple hours for Christmas Day dinner.....talk about multi-tasking!

But!!! But, I was not happy with it at all.....couldn't stand it, actually. Just a temporary solution. And now its a month later! Somehow, in the middle of some chatty time with my friend, Elise, this morning, I got a surge of energy (not quite sure how, since I'm on my second back to back cold?!) and started pulling photos (my own, this time) and cleaning the kitchen and helping my Princess make a sweet, simple, little card. Apparently, I can only work on my blog header when I'm doing several other tasks at the same time!

I know its winter (in this hemisphere), but I'm dreaming of our escapes to Fort Bragg and thought one of the gazillion sunset pics I have from our trips there, would work great! And in the end, while not perfect, I am a much happier camper who can let out a happy sigh.
