We’re already more than a week into the New Year and while 2010 seemed to come and go much too quickly, 2011 doesn’t appear to be slowing down either. I’ve noticed a byproduct of increasing age is that time becomes a precious commodity there never seems to be enough of. The same amount of sand is in the old hourglass but I believe the hole in the middle gets larger each year. I’m not meaning to be morbid here, there’s still 24 hours in a day, I just realize now more than ever their worth.
The holidays were great this year. I appreciate spending time with my family more and more these days and it’s an amazing experience to witness our newest members filling out the family tree. There were a few lean years with just us adults that were special in their own right, but nothing can compare to a house full of kids on Christmas. We had 3 running around and exploring with 3 more on the way for next year including a set of twins. Good stuff.
I also had the pleasure of spending my first Christmas with my girlfriend Melissa’s family in good old Guthrie, Kentucky. I was invited to one of their family traditions, Christmas breakfast (pronounced brack-fast) and not only was the food amazing, which it always is up there, but they were incredibly gracious hosts. They’re wonderful people and I’m enjoying the new relationships we’re building.
It’s good to be around for the new year and I have so much to share about the new things happening in 2011. It looks to be jam packed and I’m ready for it. I’ll be posting updates here and on Facebook about some of the new developments on the horizon that I don’t think you’ll want to miss. It’s going to be a good year.
