I'm feeling much like the weather, gray and dreary and dull. I had high hopes for returning to this place and typing out a complete update of our life. I wanted to blog about Annabelle's first Christmas, or going back to work after winter break, or new year's resolutions. I considered a post about losing my mom, the gut wrenching sorrow of her passing and hearing the sound of my father's heart breaking. I should write about the Bean's first birthday, how awesome the decorations and the photo booth were, and how great it was to come together for a fun celebration after the darkness of December. But I just don't want to. Instead, I'll share a layout and that will be that.
