I Said Bring it On!

I said "bring it on"....and boy, did Mother Nature listen! 18 inches of snow at least, which came down from late Friday night until late Saturday night. Beautiful, white snowflakes which layered our yard with inches and inches of snow and made it impossible to go out for nearly 24 hours. So, we ran in and out of the hot tub, built a fire, made cookies and snuggled up. It was wonderful!

Giving Thanks....

We have so much to be thankful for. Every year, we go around the table and have to name something. This year, Abby initiated it and said she was thankful for her family. Such insight from a 5-year-old, who had just spent the morning gliding through Central Park on her scooter and marveling at the balloons in the Macy's Day parade.
We spent a magical weekend in New York. Window shopping along 5th on Black Friday. Playing in Central Park. Walking through the Asian Collection at the Met. Eating well at Mezzaluna and Orsay on the Upper East Side. Seeing the balloons being blown up on the eve of the parade. Hanging out with good friends. Seeing Nana at the Mandarin for breakfast and peering out over the Hudson from her 42nd floor room.

So very much we have to be thankful for on this holiday and all year long.
