first off, forgive me for being absent, AGAIN, without notice or reason. the last time i posted was right before my return home; i've now been home a total of 6 weeks, all of which have been wonderful. and i'm sure you can guess why!
besides the sheer niceness of just being home, there have been a couple celebrations... celebrations which i'm sure (or almost sure) you also partook in. so, without further ado....
:) hope you all have had the sweetest season possible!
today also happens to be another momentous occasion in my family, because, it's someone's birthday... and that someone is my big brother, Huw :) this day in 2012 is particularly special because today he turned... wait for it... THIRTY!
how awesome is that? :) i've teased him all day (over the internet... my heart is sad because i can't be in the same place as him today, but i think i've bugged him sufficiently using technological platforms to ensure that he knows how much i adore him ;) ) about turning "old", but i honestly think 30's a pretty cool milestone to reach.
and how about another reason to celebrate? (they don't stop, really...) as of just more than a month ago, Huw is engaged to be married to the beautiful Mary-Elyse! my heart couldn't overflow with more happiness for the two of them. i'm so unbelievably glad that M.E. gets to be with Huw on his day - considering the distance they usually are from one another. [Huw lives in Johannesburg, South Africa; M.E. lives in the US somewhere. you can tell that i haven't done my homework properly, huh? but it's enough to tell that it's FAR!]
here's a little doodle i made for Huw, since i'm on holiday and have nothing much else to do with my time... (and no, i didn't draw the little critters... they're dings :P)
(and yes, that is, in fact, what my hair is beginning to look like. i'll post a photo soon.)
in other good news, i'm back in the land of the blogging, my birthday is in two weeks (!) and i'm on vacation for another three weeks!
how fares everyone else? :)
