the shortest day

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

Your champagne moment reminds me of a recent dinner. We took a nice little break and went out for a dinner that began with prosecco. Drinks with bubbles always make me feel more festive. Enjoy the next few days!
