Happy Holidays everyone!
It’s Christmas Eve, and I’m back home in Missouri. I flew in yesterday, and I’ve already spent some time hanging out with my cousin’s newborn. I’ll meet my friends Justin and Kari’s new baby boy later in the week. Obviously there’s a lot to be thankful for around here, and I’m sure everyone out there can say the same.
I’m actually taking a week of vacation to spend time with friends and family that I don’t see nearly enough, but I’ll be back at the start of the new year to begin counting the days until spring training.
Until then, I’ll be celebrating Christmas and wishing all of you a Merry Christmas. Whatever you celebrate — even if it’s nothing more than a day off work and a cheap takeout dinner — I hope you enjoy it with some people you love. Merry Christmas everyone! See you in a week.
