So far, 2011 has started out great. We had a lovely, if quiet, New Year's Eve, and a lot of fun yesterday, topped by our friend Tom's annual New Years' Day party. Beatrix has watched her fill of princess movies, we have a playdate coming up later this morning, and everyone is relatively content.
Part of why we succeed, I think, is because we really are behind each other. Of course, Patrick and I are slavishly devoted to Duchess Beatrix's desires. But we're also behind each other. I'm insanely proud of how well he is doing with his blogs, and he supports me in my work. It's not always perfect, but when we remember that we're on each others' team, it's so much better.
