As the year draws to a close, I find myself feeling lucky to have chosen College Station as our home after Ann Arbor. Yes, we live far from our extended families and I could do without the summer heat and frightening wildlife, but beyond that, life is good. I love our home, our neighborhood, and the kids' school. Tom has a great job that he (usually) enjoys and that allows me to both stay home with Will and Hallie and pursue a wide variety of professional and volunteer opportunities. We - all four of us - have wonderful friends, kind and generous people who love and support us and for whom we do the same. "Merry and Bright" seems fitting.
Today Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
~ Norman Vincent Peale
May your Christmas be soft and beautiful and merry and bright and full of love, friends.
With love from Texas, Erin
Erin, Tom, Will & Hallie -- you are a "bloom where you're planted" family and it's a joy to see. (I still hope that Iowa City is in your not-too-distant future!) ❤️ReplyDelete
