day 265: Obviously I know it’s not Christmas yet… it’s not even December yet. But Ben and I put up our Christmas tree and I’m super excited for all of the festive decorations going up all around town. We still have the outside of our house to decorate as well. Yay for holiday decorations!
day 264: We’ve had a ridiculously busy couple of weeks… traveling, houseguests…. and now even more houseguests. This time it’s Paul, who we of course took out to mexican food as soon as he arrived. Mmm mexican food.
day 263: Walking from a shop to my car around 5 this afternoon I caught a fleeting glimpse of color in the gloomy November sky… just long enough to take a photo before the sun sank and it faded to gray. What lovely puffy pink clouds…
day 262: Just a couple of weeks ago we visited Chris and Tara in New York and now it’s our turn to play host. I think they got quite a typical welcome to our home when Rita jumped on the couch and attacked their feet. It’s hospitality by foot licking, her specialty. Chris asked me to remind him NOT to wear flip flops tomorrow 🙂
day 260: On Saturday Ben and I went to the Nelson Atkins museum of art in Kansas City to take some photos of the new Bloch building addition. It is made up of channel glass and lit from the inside at night so that it glows (pretty cool). It just happened to be a special event night with luminaries lining the pathways through the outdoor sculpture gardens. There were tons of people out and it was actually a really neat event.
day 259: There is about to be a dog-napping in Kansas City. Kate & Jon’s new dog Charlie is definitely going to be smuggled in my suitcase. Look at that face… wouldn’t you steal her too? Oh Charlie… so ridiculously cute!
day 258: Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. We had quite a feast of wonderful food, great friends, and of course the best part… an amazing family. I have so very much to be thankful for! Happy Thanksgiving mom, dad, Chris & Allison… I’m sad I couldn’t be there… but I’ll see you at Christmas!!
day 257: When we went to France last month our flight was canceled out of LA… what are the chances we’d be scheduled on ANOTHER canceled flight? Well whatever the chances are that’s what happened. We were supposed to fly out on Thursday morning but got a call on Wednesday night saying our flight was canceled. We were lucky to have just enough time to catch the last red-eye on Wednesday (getting to the airport was quite a frantic experience) so that we were in town in time for Thanksgiving! What a crazy day!
