I guess I had my head stuck in the moving truck because I looked up today and everywhere around me – IT WAS CHRISTMAS!!!
Good thing the blinders came off before I missed the whole season this year. The end of a 9 yr. relationship, a new job, lots of travel and a move across country – hmmm, I can’t imagine what has distracted me this year from my FAVORITE holiday (other than my birthday, which we are pretending never took place this year).
As Sula and I cruised the streets this morning humming carols and sipping coffee we took in the wonders of Carroll Gardens in the Holiday Spirit. (A note about walking a 65 lb puppy who is always off to the races – my advice is to not try and sip coffee during said activity, unless you are fond of looking like a fool. You sip, she pulls and coffee spills all down your pretty coat. Just a thought.)
So here is my new little village, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn NY. Now if it would just snow, this scene would be even more magical.
