Ahh Monday, I'm so happy you are here!

Last week was probably one of the worst in my life. Just awful. It's times like these that you find out who your friends really are. All I am going to say is to beware of wolves in sheep's clothing. I am truly embracing today because it is the start of a new chapter in our lives. I have officially closed the book of yesterday, last week, last year. It's over. Terribly saddening, but over.

We've got our new place and I'm really kind of excited. It's cute and homey. But I am definitely now not doing Christmas decorations. There's always next year. And I'm super duper excited about a scrapbooking date I have in a couple of weeks! The perfect stress reliever!

Also, I managed to squeeze in a photo shoot last week! Here are a couple of pics and I have more at my photo blog. It's Lauren Thomas Photography over in my blog roll.

And onto a little "Best Of" catch up!

December 11 The best place. A coffee shop? A pub? A retreat center? A cubicle? A nook?
Ok, so I would say my best place was Highlands, NC. We took a random weekend trip for our anniversary and it was the most happy, relaxing place. My heart gets all worked up just thinking about it! Definitely a place I could spend a week or so just chilling in!

December 12 New food. You're now in love with Lebanese food and you didn't even know what it was in January of this year.
I am now completely in love with sushi! Specifically the dynamite roll at a place in Austell. Ahh, fabulousness! I seriously could eat it every day. I can't believe I've been missing out on this!

December 13 What's the best change you made to the place you live?
Probably the fact that I've moved twice this year - actually in less than 3 months! So, I'm not real sure what may come out of this move. I haven't unpacked everything yet! Hopefully, I can figure out the best change before the year is over so it counts for 2009. However, I think it may be the fact that we've changed our 3 bedroom lifestyle to a 1 bedroom. I think I like the simplicity.

December 14 Rush. When did you get your best rush of the year?
Hmmm....best rush. Let's see, I would have to probably say getting my photography website up and running. It just kind of felt like my business was finally real!

Alright, well I hope you all have a great great great Monday!
