Will and I have arrived in Los Alamos, New Mexico to spend the holidays with his grandparents and other family members. We’re still reeling a bit from the time zone change and the altitude and just the general stress of traveling. It is suprisingly warmer here than it was at home but still cold enough to have plenty of snow, which is super exciting. I love snow, especially around Christmas, although we’re a little concerned we may be snowed in by tomorrow morning.
Christmas is almost here and we’re ready for a low key, minimal consumption lifestyle with a few thoughtful gifts and an emphasis on simply hanging out with friend and family. I’m sure we’ll still end up eating way too much sugar and fatty foods but that’s a holiday tradition I can handle. We’re both looking forward to some time to unwind and relax and spend a moment planning for 2009.
