The Midwest was gridlocked in a polar vortex in the past week, which snarled my travel plans quite a bit (and called for extra Margaritas).
It took 4 cancelled flights before I could fly home.
The good part was that I didnâ€™t risk frostbite coming home, but Texas wasnâ€™t too warm either.
The nice part was spending bonus days with family members (and Facetiming with some).
We skipped the gift exchange this year to focus on being PRESENT with each other rather than stressing over presents, so it was nice to extend that intention into the new year for a bit.
I imbibed on TexMex and a few other local favorite goodies.
There were several movie nights.
We also had a reading party courtesy of my sister-in-lawâ€™s extensive Romance novel collection.
Extra days also made for an excuse to get a mani-pedi and a massage.
Now I am eager to start off the business year, beginning with the home studio organization that has been on hold since this snowcation.
