Fighting Holiday Fatigue

This time of year can be exhausting and I don’t know about you, but I am counting down the days until we are in Edmonton at Tyler’s parents house and we both can just relax for ten days. 2012 has been a whirlwind of a year for us. Seems like it was a one thing after another, after another, after another kind of year and we couldn’t catch a break on anything. I must say that although it had a rocky start, the year is ending on a fabulous note.

It feels wonderful to know that hard work and patience has paid off and we are both right where we need to be.
