To catch you up... My previous job situation got downsized after about 2 weeks, so since then, I've been either looking for work (which is surprisingly exhausting, if you've ever done it), building up my Etsy design shop, flushing out my business website, and also helping my dad with his job (a night-time route delivering the LA Times).

My neice turned one years old a couple weeks ago. Time sure flies! She's crawling now and starting to learn to stand while holding on to things.

The weirdest thing about living in Southern California to me is that it never really got to be winter here! We had one week where it got into the 30's at night, but for the most part, it's been fluctuating between the 40's and the 70's (night & day, respectively). Last week we even got into the 80's! That definitely makes it a little more difficult to get into the Christmas spirit, but the lights on everyone's houses around town does help.

It actually rained Thursday, which was nice. Made me feel right at home! The newspaper called it a storm and people I talked to around town called it a downpour, but we Oregonians would call it a sprinkle. Lol. Still, it was refreshing and envigorating, as rain after a long, dry spell can be, and it made for a pretty photographic moment when the sun peaked out again!
