27 Dec

The days between the excess and exhaustion of the holidays and the dawn of the New Year are strange ones. Most people are pretty much done with the merriment, but it takes that week to really get your head wrapped around the idea of the New Year.

Cormac suggests simply conking out in a sunny spot. Heck…put your feet up while you’re at it.

Sunlit Snooze

Don’t lie. You’re feeling jealous right now.

As the book resting under Cormac’s head proclaims, “Oh, the places you’ll go!” in 2012. Once you are able to rouse yourself. And also if your feet aren’t dead asleep from being raised above your heart for two hours.

    In 2012, I hope to take a nap that is as deep and peaceful as the slumbers of your little boys. Happy New Year!

    Adorable! Kids have it all figured out, don’t they? Cormac makes me excited for the new year, naps and all 🙂

    Maybe I will have a resolution this year: to nap like one of your kids. Even just once…sighh….

    Only someone with a really clear conscience could sleep that soundly plopped on the floor like that!

    Not to change the subject, but where did you get those fab star-kneed jeans?

      I got them from Mini Boden ( The clothes are expensive, but if you wait for sales they are a great value – excellent quality, usually.

    Love it! Especially his pants. My favorite jeans are ripping at the knee. You think a grown woman can get away with a star patch?

      When I was a kid in Germany, I had a pink kitten and a Snow White as my knee patches. Something tells me I wouldn’t get away with that now…

So what do you think?
