Simplicity

The ability to get to/from work, the pool, etc. all with my own 2 legs is really somewhat exhilarating. I have found I look forward to my commute home from work. Everyone has Christmas lights up and the crisp cold wind in my face that causes my eyes to water each night as I zoom down the hill I work on makes it seem a bit more festive. (I still somewhat have issue with the fact that it never seems to really feel like Christmas in Cali - this is what growing up in Chicago with a sometimes white but always cold Christmas did for me.)

I love this illustration - thanks to Nick Dewar for letting me share it!

GREAT illustration! I am SO going to find a hat for you :) Hope the hood worked well yesterday.

Now, all we need is snow!

I'm not gonna lie, I TOTALLY look forward to it not feeling like Christmas at Christmas time when I move to Cali (working on it!!).
Stupid snow started today. BOOO!
