I'm Back!

I've been missing everybody, but a bunch of stuff has happened with my family since the last time I posted on my blog, so I had to take kind of a long break from it. It seems like things are finally starting to settle down again, though, so I'm ready to blog!

So far, I'm liking 2014 WAY better than 2013, but one really good thing happened last year (kinda toward the end): WE GOT A NEW CONDO IN ASHEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA!

I'm completely jazzed about it!  We've been visiting western North Carolina for years, and I've always wanted a place there. The mountains are very bear-friendly. Plus, between our house in Atlanta and our little condominium in Asheville, we've had quite a bit of snow this winter, and I LOVE SNOW!!!!

I took the picture above yesterday from our screened porch, although most of the snow had melted by then. We got almost a foot in Asheville! (In Atlanta, we got a bunch of ice, which wasn't as fun.)

At first we didn't have any furniture in our new place, but gradually we have been adding some. I got to pick the color of our new sofa, so of course I chose purple! It's a great place for me and my brother bears to sit and watch for snow when it's too cold to sit outside.


You might also notice in the picture that I got a lava lamp for Christmas last year: Best. Present. Ever. When I'm not sitting on the porch or looking out the window, I like to watch my lamp. The blobs it makes are totally cool.

How is your 2014? Are you doing anything fun? I hope you will tell me about it in the comments below!
