Our Christmas tree, 2011
M and I leave this Monday morning for the Midwest to celebrate Christmas with our families. The airport shuttle picks us up at 4:30 in the morning. If the coffee places are not open at the airport by 5 o’clock, I will not be held responsible for my actions.
Anyway, I want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 2012 is going to be a very big year for M and me. We are talking new jobs/careers and a new place to live. At this point we have no idea where we will end up! I suppose we should find that scary, but frankly we don’t very much (at least not yet). We are ripe for change. I hope to keep on knitting and drinking cocktails and sharing them with all of you, perhaps with even more regularity.
When I was little, and we had sunsets like this, my dad said the colors were a sign that Mrs. Claus was baking Christmas cookies up at the North Pole. If this sunset is any indication, the cookies should be good this year!
