The holidays were kind of derailed for my family this year. On Christmas Eve, my maternal grandmother passed away. We got word that morning that she was in the hospital and took a turn for the worse, so my parents and I hopped the first flight we could get to California. Obaasan had passed before we made it there.
One of the good things has been going through old photo albums and seeing family pictures I'd never seen before. Also plenty of proof of my awkward years. Yikes.
Anyway, I just wanted to explain the blog silence for the time being.
