It's been a great holiday season, but it's time to get out of vacation-mode and back into work-mode...
Avi and I had a fantastic holiday abroad - making a winter escape from Grenada for a tourist's Christmas in New York. I made a concerted effort to put my camera away and relied more on my iPhone for the unique moments that made up our vacation.
It's great to be back in Grenada, and with a heavy workload coming down the pipeline I'm thankful for the special time Avi and I had together. There's quite a lot going on in the mosaic above, but here's a quick description of each from left to right, top to bottom:
