The family is gone, the halls are about to be undecked, and as we face the final evening of 2012, I find myself feeling very Charlie Brownish. October through December is always my favorite time of year, and with that behind us, the warm winter days will soon turn into the unbearable heat of summer. For me, the fall is all about potential. The disappointing Florida winters are not. I yearn for seasons, but at the moment, moving to my ideal place is just not possible.
Tomorrow, I will reflect on all of the wonderful things that 2012 brought me, and all of the excitement 2013 holds. But for tonight, I will allow myself to feel just a little bit sad as I relax and ring in the new year with my small but perfect family.
From my family to yours, Happy Holidays!
