Recently, I made a decision which will/has already begun to change my life completely. I keep going back and forth about how I feel about it - most days I know for absolute certain that it was the right one. But then there are those few in-betweeners. Those pesky little doubts that creep into my head, quietly at first and then, before I've even noticed it, drown out any and all logic; from there it's just sheer panic. Thank God I'm a list person. Whenever I feel myself start to freak out under the pressure of this aforementioned change, I categorize and organize whatever is going on in my brain into a word document, along with the steps needed to fix/complete/accomplish it, and I feel much better.
This is not one of those days, thankfully. It almost started out that way, but I quickly opened that little "recent document" on my computer, and voila, assurance. (If I were a pessimist, I'd call it denial, but I'm not...right?) All silliness, really. Of course, whatever happens, I know I'm going to be fine. I do tend to think that a little healthy anxiety acts as motivation, so I don't mind it........much.

Last week, I purchased a loverly new camera, the Canon G12. I can't say enough nice things about it. The pictures are fantastic, especially in low light with no flash. YEE! See for yourself...

Last weekend, we went to London for X-factor. I had a great time, despite the cold, and it was so nice to be there during the holiday season - the white lights and wreaths lining every street, the gorgeous red, green, gold and silver shop window displays - it was beautiful! Hannah, our keyboard player from this last tour lives there, and she and I enjoyed an indulgent 3 hour Saturday brunch at this adorable little restaurant in Kensington called "Bumpkin." We hadn't seen each other in the 3 months since tour and thought the occasion called for a Bloody Mary or 2....

As if Los Angeles were trying to prove that it is, indeed, superior to any other city, when I flew back into LAX the weather was perfect. It was warm, the skies were clear, and the wind was pleasant. Matt picked me up and we went straight to the beach to meet friends for a bonfire -bocce ball - BBQ. It was oh-so-nice. Nothin' like watching the sun go down over the ocean in the middle of December!

Hope everyone is happy and healthy this winter! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New year!
