The end...not quite.

I have been on vacation since 
I got back from New York...Dec 15th.
All ready to head back to work today...
and I found out last night we don't go back
until Tuesday.   Hallelujah.  Now, it's not
like I don't love my work...but it has been so
great hanging out with the Dude and taking life
a little bit slower.
We went out to dinner with Sam and his mama-dada last night. ( That is one word to him.)
He was such a trooper having missed his nap.  He dipped chip after chip into a little
cup of ketchup.  At 19 months he is changing so much.
  Love this little guy....like I couldn't ever imagine.
  Being a granny is the greatest thing in the whole wide world.

On a different note.  When I do go back to work, I will only be in my 
studio for 4 days and then we leave for a very quick 4 day trip.
We will be attending a funeral in Taipei.  Our brother Carlson Ling
will be honored  January 9th.
This man, along with his brother...saved Bunnies By The Bay.
He owns our factory in China.   (It is small and only produces
our baby things.  Sewn and finished by hand.)

He was 70 years old, and was also a Rugby Referee.  He heart
 gave up on a track like this close to the factory, as he was
training for a match coming up in Beijing in a few days.
He was an amazing man...who lived a very full and rich
life.  Loved by many and honored by all.

Life goes by so quickly.  Sam is not even 2 years old yet,
and Carlson was 70.  So little time to enjoy all there
is to this gift...life.  I am so grateful to have the 
opportunity to know and love all those who cross
 my path.  For each and everyone has taught
me a life lesson, from love... to letting-go.

Thank-you for following this journey with me.
If only with words and pictures...
sometimes that's all it takes...to feel connected.
It makes me wonder, what the new year will bring in.
What ever that is...the appreciation for my humble
little life has been lifted.
Happy New Year.
