After putting it off and putting it off, I finally went through my bag last night. The weekly clean-out was delayed due to travel, which resulted in at least five extra pounds of junk. The receipts, wrapers, airline peanuts, boarding passes and loose change were all expected- but finding six hotel key cards from a span of 14 days, surprised me.
Life has definitely kept me on my toes since the first of the year, but every second has been packed with laughter, memories and new friends.
On Wednesday, I'll be visiting my God Daughter's First Grade Class to read 'Oh, The Places You'll Go!' in honor of Dr. Seuss's Birthday. I found it rather apropos that this was the book selected for me.

Thankfully, the proprietor sold us her last Duraflame log for the fireplace in our room :)
