Happy Holiday Images
**Edited to add pictures -- clearly I've been away from blogging too long and have forgotten how to add pictures!
I tried to take a picture of the Pageant of Peace... all the mini trees with the decorations decorated by artists and children from the various states but unfortunately my pictures came out too blurry. But believe me when I say the Ellipse, the grassy area across from the White House, was beautiful.
Our first Christmas in Washington DC would not be complete without a trip to see the National Christmas Tree and National Hanukkah Menorah. Here are some pictures from the visit.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
Last night I was reminiscing about my 2011 -- I finished a second masters degree, beat cancer for a third time, moved out of Indiana and back to the East Coast and live in a pretty cool city, landed an awesome fellowship, met and made lots of new peeps and strengthened the bond with some close friends and family. And of course I was blessed to be able share all of these experiences with my hubby. I had a great 2011 and I'm totally looking forward to the many adventures 2012 will bring
