My December 2015 in Instagram!

What a strange December!

It took a while to get into the Christmas spirit this year. Not least of all because of the weather (it was up to 70 degrees some days!). I was debating whether or not I should get a tree this year, since it was just me and Joe here for 95% of the month, but we did end up getting a small, fake tree. I spent so much time making gift guides for him and her and kids for the blog that I barely had time to buy gifts for my list. And I think I listened to Christmas music only like two days this year!

Joseph's Early Christmas Present: An iPad Pro Review

In preparation for the move, Joe downgraded his computer set-up. A desktop with tower and two monitors is a bit unwieldy for international travel. So, he sold the whole kit and caboodle a couple of months ago and we've been sharing my laptop ever since.

  • now we won't have to bother one another to get a turn on the laptop
  • the iPad Pro & Apple Pencil combo will enable & motivate Caitlin to get serious about trying freelance graphic design
  • he gets to try out a cool new toy

Since we've been using the thing non-stop now for the better part of a week, Joe has put together some thoughts into a thorough review of the iPad Pro. His thoughts below!
