Just before the holidays, life was a whole lotta work. And not much play. And then during vacation, I turned off. Well, not really. But finding that balance between livelihood and life sure is tough. Always has been, always will be. Spending time with friends and family over the holidays was just the reminder I needed that nothing else is more important. I'm resolving to be more present in the new year. To try to be more efficient so that I can take moments to play—like we did this afternoon in a snowy park—with the people (and pup) I love most.
