Hello reality! We spent an extra long holiday weekend in Philadelphia with my in laws. The transition back to real life has been a bit hectic. Why do I always feel like I need a vacation when I return from vacation? Probably because I’m a mom. Vacations are hard work!

Hello post vacation laundry. I suppose you’re not going to fold yourself are you? A special thanks to my amazing husband who pushed it all through the washer and dryer when we got home last night. The folding elves didn’t show up though.

Hello photos! Hello camera full of memories. Anyone seen my camera cord? Ugh. Hello family photos. Dear photographer. Hurry up and post a teaser! I know she got some amazing shots.

Hello refrigerator full of food. I did not like grocery shopping last night as soon as I got home however.  Hello to a renewed interest to treat my body better by feeding it yummy foods. Hello salad. Hello beets. Yum!

Hello winter holidays! We put our tree up before we left. I have to keep reminding myself to slow down and enjoy the season. I want to do everything and I want to do it right now! Christianity is our religion but we have Jewish friends. Hello Chanukah. Hello latkes, gelt, and dreidel. We also friends who celebrate Solstice. Hello Winter!
