Lit up tree in Cambridge

Friday night we went to see Chris's band play at the Cantab in Cambridge (they were excellent), on the way we passed so many gorgeously lit up trees in icy blue lights.

O Tannenbaum

The family Christmas tree.  We ran out of lights this year, for the first time ever!

Let it snow!

I woke up to a fine layer of snow this morning.  Good thing I remembered to pack my bogs! I think this is all the snow I'm going to see in AVL.

I finally got around to setting up some decorations.  I decided to hang birthday & holiday cards up on the Christmas lights.  Only 26 hours until I am back home, hopefully sitting by the woodstove & gigantic Christmas tree.

Night 8

Holiday Lights

Took this on the last night of Chanukah (which was Saturday), I love the glow of the candles and the bokeh from our Xmas tree lights - all sorts of festive-ness!

Looking Glass

Last weekend, I went hiking in Pisgah National Forest on this trail that ends at an amazing opening on a rock face.  It was pretty steep and scary.  I am looking forward to the spring & summer when things are in bloom it will be even more beautiful.

Reindeer Run

Last weekend, I laced up my racing shoes and ran a 5k with my new running buddy.  We got into the holiday spirit with reindeer antlers, bows and bells.  While we weren't the fastest reindeer, we were the most decorated and noisiest.  The race was only about 100 people.  Definitely a change from running in Boston.  But it was 65 degrees out, so I can't complain too much.

Bon Anniversaire!

why yes, I did do this on my desk during lunch; amazing, isn't it?

Happy Birthday, dear friend. I hope it's an amazing one. I wish I was there to celebrate with you.
