heading west.

We've spent a week here in my hometown, Glen Ellyn--this winter wonderland, snow village sort of place--with my family and friends. The snow hasn't stopped falling and the food hasn't stopped coming and it's just been perfect... the sort of holiday you try to memorize, minute by minute, hoping to always remember it. 

This morning, though, we are heading west--to San Francisco--to see his family and all of our friends from college. We'll be spending a week in California, including a few days in Lake Tahoe for New Years, and I just couldn't be more excited. It'll be warmer and sunnier (hopefully) and a little vacation is just what we need to kick off the new year!

 I may post a time or two while we're gone, but it'll be pretty quiet around here until 2011 :)
Hope you've all had a wonderful holiday! 

I'm curious: are you making any resolutions this new year? What are they?

no better place to be for the holidays than California:)

(says this Indiana-by-way-of-California transplant.)

My resolutions: to love more deeply; forgive more willingly; & to feed my body and soul well. Then: practical things like: save $__ a month, cook x amount of meals a week, and finally get my car registration taken care of.

happy New Years to you and yours!

Sounds like a perfect Christmas you had, and an even better way to spend the new year! Thanks me making me jealous too, by the way! ;)
New year's resolutions...gosh I make them every year and they never come true! But this year I'm going to change that. It pretty much involves changing my life! But that's what I was heading for, with or without the new year, so hopefully it'll make it happen even more!

Winter wonderland really looks like a fun place to be right now! I'm jealous. :) My new year resolutions are still in the works and not set in stone yet.
