I'm a procrastinator. And the trouble with procrastinating is that when you do sit down to complete your task, it's completely overwhelming to try and catch back up.
I've been taking pictures. But the idea of editing them was daunting. And each day, I'd snap more pics, download them, and plan to edit them. Later.
Luckily, Pete has started school again, and so it's a little easier to spend time sitting in front of the computer at night editing without feeling guilty that we're not spending time together.
January has been a good month for us. A kind of quiet good, with lots of time at home and lazy weekends. I'm trying to really soak in every minute I can of home-time, before I start working regularly in about a month. It has felt really good to have so many days that are empty on the calendar, but left our hearts feeling full when we tucked into bed.
Lots of outside time.
Time with friends.
Addy and Ava. Addy is the quiet thinker, Ava finds everything so exciting, she basically levitates most of the time. Ying and yang.
A morning at the aquarium.
Snow. I was reminded why I love New England. The snow. It snowed three times in one week, and each time it was melted in 24 hours. But we still made the most of it.
And snow means hot chocolate. And hot chocolate milk mustaches.
The gig is up. Ava spends 2 days a week with me, and nothing makes her tuck her chin faster than when she sees me going for the camera.
Pseudo-spring weather. When there wasn't snow on the ground, it felt like April.
Look both ways before you cross. Here comes February.
