Hi! I'm Kelly.

As a writer, I've always been interested in family stories. When I heard of a Satanic cult in my family tree, I thought I'd found the story of a lifetime. Read more.

Last Christmas

Last Christmas

We celebrated our fourth and final Christmas today.

The first was with my brother's family, the second at home, the third with my parents and the fourth with the in-laws. 

I downloaded the clips I shot at each family gathering and was planning to stitch them together into a Christmas video, like I do every year. But Adobe Creative Cloud refused to read my videos. After an hour of troubleshooting, I isolated the problem to the Dropbox app on my phone and identified a workaround. Now I just need to frame it as progress (and not an evening wasted.)

Favorite moments of the day: 

  • The boys let me sleep in until past eight this morning
  • A cornflower blue sky thick with white clouds
  • Reading The Creative Tarot and feeling excited about this new tool for tapping into my intuition
  • Seeing the boys dance with excitement over unopened Christmas presents
  • Christmas cookies with piped frosting and edible glitter
  • Watching the baby eat a cupcake and getting his face covered with icing
