Work and life has been crazy busy this fall. I've completely lost my thrifting and blogging mojo, but hopefully it will return! I have been reading all your lovely blogs, but I haven't been able to comment as much as I would have liked.
So what's been going on? In short, the founder of the office I work for, a true modernist and a great architect, has turned seventy and has asked me and a few of my colleagues if we want to take over the practice. He started it 40 years ago and we have a solid position in the city we're based. We are 8 architects, small enough to enjoy the benefits of short decision lines but big enough to take on large projects. So this fall and winter, there's been a lot of time spent on negotiating all the details about the take over. It feels a bit overwhelming right now, but it's gonna be exciting!
Yesterday was my last day at work before Christmas. We always dress up a little, have a delicious meal together and give eachother gifts before we part for the holidays. In the evening we had my parents and my sister's family over for a get together over my dad's wonderful bacalao, celebrating Christmas a little in advance, because we won't be home. My husband, who is a pilot, has a flight to New York with a four day layover, and instead of spending the holidays apart, the boys and I are tagging along. So the holidays will be a little different this year. But Christmas is where the family is, right? The boys are thrilled, and that's the most important thing.
I want to wish every one of you lovely friends out there a wonderful Christmas and all kinds of happiness in the coming year!
All the best, Tove
