I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. I love having all my family together, eating tons of sweets and Syrian food, and seeing my world turn into fairy land with all the sparkling lights. But I hate all the work—mental and physical—that goes into those things.
And I can’t even think about writing … well, okay, I think about it nearly every waking moment—wait, no, I dream about it too! But there’s no time to actually sit and write. I need to be two, maybe three, people right now.
Here’s a family photo from last year—my apologies to those who lost weight and/or grew hair this year. I’ll post an updated one after Christmas Eve, okay?
