If nothing else, keeping up a blog is a constant reminder of the passage of time. Tomorrow is another Monday, and Friday will be Christmas Eve – almost another year gone by. For us it is a crazy time. On two continents and from other states, family members are preparing to fly to Charleston for Leigh & Josh’s wedding on January 2nd. We’re getting down to the wire here with all the planning for the big event as well as multiple related festivities. Rob arrived back from the UK last night and things will really start to ramp up from here. Tonight we just chilled, caught up some, and enjoyed roast lamb. Leigh and Josh were babysitting Madeline and Josh, so this snap is of them sitting on the verandah as the sun went down.
