Update from the 210

Below is what I tried to post earlier from my phone. Obviously, there were some hiccups, so here’s what I tried to say:

The drive to Texas was mostly uneventful, but we did have some interesting bouts of fog. You can see pictures of the great journey on instagram. Since we got in it’s been a whirlwind of family, friends, food and fun. And we aren’t done yet 🙂

In other news, I’m posting from my phone because my laptop now refuses to stay on if I open the internet. Hooray! Luckily I’m not dependent on that laptop after buying my desktop, but I am out of luck this trip. So, if you’d like to stay up to date on the comings and goings in Texas, instagram will have to be the source.

Any way, hope you all are happy and well this holiday season, and maybe thinking about your new years resolutions already. I know I am. Merry Christmas, happy holidays!

Since then Mr. RAD and I have been gifted with a new laptop, so my silly 2006 macbook pro can stay in its sleeve and think about what it’s done, while I tell you what’s happened since Christmas eve.

Christmas eve was good times, we spent time with the family, had a hilarious night of white elephant and desserts after church, and then spent the rest of the evening playing dominoes at my parents’ house with my brother and sister in law. Christmas was also great, and I got an especially lovely gift from Mr. RAD – the rose gold watch I have been pining over on Pinterest. It’s slightly different than that one, but pretty close.

Since then it’s pretty much been hanging out with people we haven’t seen in over a year, and trying to decide what to do for new year’s here in SA. Suggestions are welcome 🙂 We should be headed back to the Sunshine State just after New Year’s so check back then for more design work and updates on RachelAnnDesign.com and such.

Until next time,


P.S. Way to make it though the 13th baktun everyone! The Mayan calendar may not have predicted the end of the world, but their art and body paint certainly is beautiful.
