So the holidays were full of the good and the bad. A lot of great family time partly created by some health issues that gathered everyone near. I often take for granted all the amazing parts of being part of a big family. For all the points of tension that years of knowing each other can create the amount of love that is there is still so much bigger than that. This year included a mass family viewing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of SmAUg (for anyone that seen it the accent on the AU in Smaug’s purpose is clear). I loved it, but not so much that it didn’t feel long. It’s great LONG movie, be prepared. Other notable events included a trip to my favorite beer store in Ohio as of last week, Vintage Estates and getting to see my nephew’s band play at Hard Rock Cafe Pittsburgh. Here’s a pic of Somethin’ Tasty doing what they do so well:
Peace in the New Year to all. May we all learn to serve in the ways that leave us fulfilled and other respected.
