DESPITE ALL THE Decembers I’ve lived through, the month always comes upon me suddenly. I know it comes right after November every single year, but I’m never ready for it. And while I love Christmas it has a tendency to barrel down upon me like a giant rolling ball of stress. Er, I mean snow.
Which is why I didn’t know what to expect when I headed into San Francisco two weeks before Christmas, armed with my camera and an assignment from Milli.
I knew that SF would be reveling in her brightest lights and happiest sounds, but I was feeling cold and kind of Grinchy. I thought it might be one of those irresistible-force-meets-cranky-immovable-object kind of outings.
Let’s see whether I was right. . . .
As it turns out, San Francisco was just what I needed to tap into my jolly. . . .
Back home, I put Pandora on the Christmas channel, decorated the house, and started rockin’ around the Christmas tree.
Hope you all had a magnificent holiday!
