Christmas Down South

frosty3Xmas2014 E and I have headed south for the holiday.

This is the first time I’ve been warm for Christmas, warm enough that even Frosty the Snowman here can get a tan. I believe this is the beginning of a new tradition for me.

Post will be intermittent, but wanted to say Happy Holidays to all before we start enjoying family activities. First up, a boat ride! In December! I’m liking this south for the winter thing!

I appreciate all of your support in 2014, and look forward to an awesome 2015!

And the tree, the illustrious Rock Center tree, pictured above, is in the middle of it all. Well, so is Saks. But really, the tree is the main holiday attraction. Continue reading
