Post-Christmas Week-end links

Welcome to my weekly post to share a few of the best posts from around the web, plus a few highlights from family life. I’m keeping this short and sweet so I can get back to hanging out with my crew, but I wanted to share a few favorite posts to give you food for thought as you greet the new year.

Christmas family 2014

We had a lovely, low-key Christmas. No extravagance of gifts but that’s how we like it. Although I’m really not a “gifts” person, I loved the homemade gifts from my kids. Best of all, we’ve had an abundance of family time, and I’m particularly happy Ken will still be off work all next week.

Enjoy your weekend, and have a safe and happy celebration of the new year!
