Have I failed to mention to all of you why:
... we're purging like mad?
... my etsy shop will be closed from December 20th until the new year?
... we don't have a single holiday decoration up in the apartment?
... instead of giving only handmade gifts that we made ourselves this Christmas, we'll be giving handmade goods by others and other locally purchased gifts, too?
Two days after we return from Cleveland, Barry and I will become first-time home owners of a pretty little loft here in Portland. We'll be moving in at the end of the month, two short days after we get back from Cleveland. Things have been hectic around here for the past couple weeks to say the least, but it's all worth it. This is the perfect way for us to welcome in the new year, I'd say.
