November extinguished itself in a warm flurry of plane rides across the world, reunification with those I love the most, and wonderful food. December arrived, cold as frozen iron. Changing from one world to another feeling like the most unnatural feeling in the world. As I write this, I sit wrapped in a warm blanket next to my fireplace- feeling so full with everything I've experienced, wanderlust fully satisfied.

My heart is bubbling with excitement for what lies ahead this month, a chance to get back in my studio and get creative, house hunting, and the days, weeks, and months of snuggling with my love this winter will bring. Our first winter together. My first. ever.
