Joyful Expectation

The biggest tree to ever grace our apartment

For a number of reasons, the most significant of which is pictured here, tonight is the first night that I've been able to relax and enjoy at home in a long time. As frustrating as it is to be so busy throughout Advent, I suppose it's appropriate that the source of that busyness is the "joyful expectation" of a child of our own. Thankfully we have a few more months to prepare our hearts, minds and apartment for that but this is a good time and place to start.

Merry Christmas, everyone.
