I thought January was supposed to be a slow month. I even petitioned to have Christmas moved back a month, just to give us some time to build up and enjoy it a bit more. But, so far, this January hasn’t given me a moments pause. Between the after-holiday clean up (tell that to the scattering of Christmas ornaments still peeking out here and there), one of my design clients opening his doors on a new location, work, and oh yeah, my sister’s wedding, I am wondering when I can take a day off.

Seems like a silly thing to waste a vacation day on, but it just may happen. I have never been one to be able to waste a day sitting and doing nothing, but it really feels like I could stand to have a day just re-cooperating from all of it.

My sister’s wedding was beautiful and went off without a hitch. I was nervous as heck standing up there in front of everyone, so I can’t even begin to imagine what she was feeling, but she made a wonderful bride. Her husband looked insanely happy, the daddy-daughter dance was beautiful, her mom and aunts were kicking it on the dance floor all night long, and guess who caught the bouquet?! There wasn’t even a fight for who was going to catch the garter as Handsome did the peacock poof (that moment when men put their chests out, shoulders back and make themselves appear bigger) and stared down the pack of single men before the groom tossed it.  All in all, it was a great night for everyone.

Now that it’s mid-January and things don’t appear to be slowing down at all for myself, I may have to readjust to the busier schedule. One can’t complain about more work on the pile right? I know I can’t. So, finger’s crossed the rush of projects and events keeps up!

Time for a delicious, filling pork tinga dinner recipe.

I have made chicken tinga but never pork, this looks delish! And I agree, January has been cra-zazzle. I'm so glad your sister's wedding went well though!

Give me a margarita on the rocks and I'm set. I'm drooling at the thought of this crunchy tortilla carrying those delectable bits into my mouth! (lol!)
