This is the last night, for us, before things really get going, and slow down at the same time. Tonight, our last night alone for a while, Alexi and I sat, and talked, and drank champagne, while we finished wrapping everything, aside from a few more expected, last minute deliveries tomorrow. We saw the Northwest Boychoir perform A Festival of Lessons and Carols at Benaroya Hall last night. Tomorrow we'll go to our last holiday party, and then, late, family arrives. I thought long and hard, today, about a menu for Christmas Eve and Christmas, settling on a few favorites everyone will like, that won't take forever to make. And tomorrow we'll shop, early, probably before I even shower. The market, the butcher, the wine shop.
I'll likely check in at some point over the weekend. Best wishes to you and yours. xoxo
