How have I forgotten how much I love this time of year? I love cozy snowy evenings and fresh bracing mornings and there's something so hopeful about the first month or so of snow. I love the holidays: I love family and travel and food.
I spent this week with the Texas branch of James's family. We got one day of warm weather (we spent a couple of hours out on the dock Wednesday night--full moon, lake lapping, James, perfect), a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner (Sherry's brined turkey was incredible), lots of delicious food actually, great time with the fam and a safe ride there and back (40 hours total. James and I are great at ridiculous road trips). I am grateful for the time with family and for James and for the break.
