As I sit down on Christmas Eve with Anna and my family in Australia, it occurs to me how lucky I am to have those closest to me with me over this time of year. Usually, I don't get to see my family at Christmas time on account of living in the USA, so this time is incredibly special to me. That said, I definitely do miss the Christmas spirit that envelopes Seattle, and the feeling of being by the warm winter fire, with my friends there. In that light, it's fitting that a Christmasy scene of Pike Place Market appears on the blog today.
From me and my family to you and your family, Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday season.
