Christmas has come and gone...

Why is it hardest to feel any motivation in the days following Christmas? Doesn't the time seem to go much slower, the pace of life is just crawling by? Ugh, these days can be such a pain. 
I hope all of you had a great Christmas, receiving some great gifts, eating lots of yummy food and spending quality time with your friends and family.

I had a great Christmas and sad to be back in the routine of normal life. We had a great trip, all four of us, Sean, Kip, Kimbia and myself up to the central coast. On Friday, I got to see my aunt, uncle and two cousins and their significant others (one husband, the other boyfriend) for dinner, always a great time whenever I see them, which isn't nearly enough.

While up there, we went for some runs, did some wine tasting, met up with friends, went to church, celebrated Christmas of course with the family.
Just a photo re-cap of our trip. 
 A trail run with the dogs and some gorgeous views!









And our Christmas morning!

Looks like a wonderful Christmas!

The lull between Christmas and New Year's is just awful.

i definitely agree with the lack of motivation after holidays-it's so funny how even when you need to get things done, some how you don't?

have a happy new year!

Jenna said...

I feel so unmotivated this week, too! Luckily, I picked up a lot of extra hours at work since one of the other receptionists is out of town so I go there and stay busy/productive! :)

Glad you had such a wonderful Christmas, Meg! I just love seeing a good Christmas tree with presents wrapped beneath it.

How fun to get out and run with the dogs! They look like they are in heaven! I can't complain about the time going by slow because I am off work for the week and enjoy the lazy time!! Hope you had a Merry one!

Carlie said...

Your dogs look so happy to be out there running! Looks like a great Christmas!

Alexa said...

I feel the same way. It's just a tad depressing really.

I love getting my dog out and seeing him running around, it just makes me so happy. I love the shadow pic, very cool.

I love the pictures from your trail run! It's so great to get out with the dogs. We had to board Rex for Christmas and I made sure to take him on an extra long walk the day he came home. He's always a little depressed when he comes home, but the walk cheered him right up!! I'm so glad you had a good Christmas, Meg! It is hard to get motivated again, but I'm working on it! :)

Val said...

These pics are so great!

Kerri said...

I hear ya! This week has had a VERY sleepy feel to it. I've had a hard time getting motivation! Hope you have a good new year's weekend, Meg. I'm so glad we've become blogger friends over the last few months! :)

Jamie said...

I feel so lucky that we're still on vacation but I'm sure that when I return back to the normal routine it was all feel so slow and slugish. Where on the central coast were you? I love that area!

Allison said...

Looks like a great time! Your doggies are so cute. :)

Jessie Szmanda said...

What cute puppies. I know what you mean - I've been so lazy lately. ugh!

Katie said...

I give you lots of credit for working out over the holidays- I managed to do that once! I'm feeling the post holiday slump as well; but Cheers to the New Year!

Kristin said...

It's amazing how fast it's over!

Meghan [My kind of crazy] said...

Looks like you had a fun trip! Happy New Year, Meg! :)

Jenn :D said...

I hear ya! I've had no motivation this week at all. Looks like you had a terrific holiday and the views on your trail run were gorgeous.

It looks like a fun Christmas. I'm kind of sad that its all over.

Hollie Ann said...

oh i hear you...i just feel liek vacationing forever...i need to get motivated!!

glad you had a great christmas, meg :)

Alyx said...

Amen, sista! I know what you mean about the time slowing down and a lack of motivation! It definitely doesn't help that I haven't had to work, either. It's like my butt has grown to the couch besides the occasional trip to the store and load of laundry to do or meal to cook. I'm becoming a hermit....
On a completely different note, looks like you had an awesome Christmas!

Jamie said...

Pismo?!?! I went to college in SLO and absolutely love Pismo. I'm so jealous!
