I know, I know. Too many days have gone by with not one little peep from the Atomic Blonde. The good news is I’m still alive. In fact, I’m doing pretty well. Work has calmed down a great deal, and we’re now entering the holiday season, which never – EVER -fails to cheer me.
The in-laws were over from the UK for a couple of weeks, and we had a fantastic time showing them around Cackalackey. We took them up to the Biltmore Estate last weekend, which was a bit selfish, really, considering it’s one of my favorite places on the planet. It was already decorated for Christmas, too, so it really got me in the holiday spirit. In the past, I’ve been one of those purists who leaves her Nat King Cole records and White Christmas DVD locked up until Black Friday, but no more. I love this season so much, and in the midst of what has been a hard-knock, depressing year, Christmas can’t come early enough for me. That’s why I bought 24 candy canes yesterday, started planning my holiday baking, and am tuned into Today’s Best Christmas Mix 24/7.
