Christmas Travels and 2014 in Review

It’s been over a week since I posted (what a surprise!) due to travelling and spending non-internet time with friends and family. I’m copying Heather and doing a one-sentence-per-picture post to catch you up on all my activities over the past week-ish.

Traffic on I-70 is never a good time.

I convinced Mom to take a post-workout selfie after our gym time on Christmas Eve.

As we made this year’s Christmas cards, J and I realized we had basically no pictures together, so we took one before church on Christmas Eve.

I ran by a Christmas tree farm (sorry if you can’t tell that’s what it is. My fingers were cold) on Christmas Day, in lightly falling snow. So festive.

On the other side of the mountains, we spent some time with J’s family… including this adorably ornery nephew.

And now we’re back home, spending the last bit of Christmas break relaxing and catching up on stuff at home.

In other news, WordPress sent me an e-mail with my blog’s annual report today, and I thought it would be fun to share that with you. Enjoy!

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

What was the best part of your Christmas?

Any fun plans for New Year’s? I’ll be at home. I’ll probably be in bed by 10. I don’t mind at all; it feels good to be home, and it’s so cold that I don’t want to leave the house. I’m a grandma.

If you’re a blogger, what was your favorite post of 2014? I think mine would have to be this one, even though it didn’t make the top-five list in the WordPress report.
