merry christmas.

christmas gifts-1-4

I can’t believe Christmas is only a few sleeps away already. I’ll be taking a break from this space to enjoy the holiday season with our family and some long overdue rest. As we do each year, we’ll be traveling to spend the next week with both of our families–think progressive slumber party–sharing tasty foods and drinks and gifts and tons of laughs, I’m sure. Here’s a picture from our white Christmas last year, when I dressed the kids for a 10 second pose in front of my parents house. (Thank you, Kristen, for this magical image.)

I’m also excited to announce some new changes coming to Cloistered Away in 2014–a whole new design! Eep! As a result, the blog will be down in a couple of days while all the content is transitioned. The space should be up again the first of 2014 with a few new features/projects to share. Thank you again for all of your readership and support. I’m so grateful for each of you — merry Christmas! xo
