After the holidays....

I always feel a little sad after the holiday hoopla...does anyone else feel this way?

I'm glad that the shopping is done...everyone has opened gifts...all of the food and drink has been merrily consumed. I think I am just sad that there is not any more major reasons to get together as a huge family for awhile. I see my grandparents and my aunts and uncles now and then but everyone including myself is so busy during the rest of the year it is hard to see everyone as a group except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Anyways...I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! The husband and I went back and forth between our families for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Luckily our parents do not live far from each other so it wasn't bad at all!

Both the husband and I ate our way through Christmas so starting tomorrow (or the next day!) we are eating healthy! That means no more Christmas cookies!

I have also taken a break these past few days from art but tomorrow I am going to get back into the swing of things and start making some spring collages to put in my etsy store. I am already excited for warm weather!

Well have a good one and I hope to post some new art tomorrow!
