Let's start with site design. I liked blogger's site designs but it removes the pages and archives (at least it did for me) so I decided to go back to the traditional look. Since you can now upload your own background photo, I tried to do that with one of my favorite photos I took in Peru, but it didn't turn out right. If anyone knows how to, or understands how to get 1600x1200 resolution in a 300kb photo, please let me know. I got the right resolution, but the photo size was just too big. So, I had to pick a stock background, but I like the book since I kinda consider myself a reader.
This is shaping up to be one of the best Christmas since I entered adulthood sixteen years ago. I've been doing lots of baking, and really liking it. I've finally embraced the joy of cooking and baking. And I let go of the idea that holidays are only fun when little kids are around. Infertiles have to create their own fun! This is quite a change from last year when I told my MIL and SIL that I was pretty much depressed all the time. I've learned my life is how I frame it. Cliche, yes, but very true.
My husband called me and asked if there was any other gift I'd like at Christmas. No, I really don't need anything, honey. Trust me, I've been constantly searching the J.Crew website this week since they've been having 30% off and free shipping offers all week. I did want a green coat (shown below) but I just didn't need it and couldn't justify the expense. Besides, I ordered two workout DVDs and if my husband is concerned I won't have enough gifts to open, I told him to wrap each video separately. It's all good.
