We spent a wonderful Christmas in Chattanooga. It was rather perfect with perhaps the only exception being the absence of snow. Since we knew a white Christmas wasn’t even a possibility, it wasn’t too disappointing.



Otherwise all the elements where there for a wonderful celebration: dear family,


a beautiful Christmas lunch,



an exceptional little baby,


and even kittens!

Now, on New Year’s Eve, we are enjoying the last of those quiet days “between the years” when no one has anywhere they have to be or anything they have to do and we are free just to be together, potter around, think about all that has happened in the past year and all that we are hoping for in the new one.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
