Merry Christmas !

gum drop land

I hope everyone is having a magical little day for themselves - filled with loved ones and cookies and chocolate and maybe a Christmas sweater or an Elvis Christmas carol or two!!

This is my second Christmas in SF ... away from the East Coast... It's really tough being away from family, but Christmas Eve was sort of really great!! A Westley walk to Grace Cathedral hill around 11:15 PM, for a gum drop tree photo shoot and then I wandered into midnight mass ... the cathedral was so pretty with the glowy lights and the frankincense rising up into the rafters. I've never been to a midnight mass before, and I've never actually been into Grace Cathedral ... I think last night was the perfect time to be there.

Today Westley and I are relaxing and eating our own treats respectively - freeze dried chicken for him, and Lacey's cookies for me! Even though my family is miles and miles away - I'm happy to have this little fur baby as my official present shredder!!
