Well...it's me...Christina...and I'm back (sounds like a song, doesn't it??). ANYWAY...After not blogging for the entire month of December, I figure I should get back on the
horse blogging. So, say a little prayer for me (another song...lol), and here goes!! Oh, and a pretty picture to get your morning going :)

There has been A LOT going on, and after Hurricane Sandy, everything sort of came to a head.

There were some positive things in there...I promise...I got recognized at my company party in the middle of December, Greg and I hosted a "Trim-a-Tree/Holiday/End-of-the-World/Bottle Share/Ugly Sweater" Party on 12-20-12, Greg and I had a fantastic Christmas together (AND Thanksgiving, because I didn't blog about that either), and now we're looking at the New Year.
