Sometimes I feel very young.....

Especially when Christmas time is coming and I'm in a city that makes me feel so gloriously small.

It was a gorgeous day today, and we watched the sun fall from a pier in DUMBO, dazzled by our adopted home.

Like they say, the best view of Manhattan is from Brooklyn.

Sometimes, I have to stop everything and embarass myself for a moment of Christmas cheer!

But I am getting ahead of myself. I had much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, most of all, my Grandfathers health-- he had been not feeling well at all, which meant a whirlwind trip to Ohio the weekend before Thanksgiving, more on that in a later post! My poor and wonderful mother went from Portland to New York to Ohio, back to New York and finally home to Portland again in the space of a long weekend. Phew!

Anyway, I was thankful for the health and happiness of my family, and for all the lovely friends who shared our meal this year-- all NINE of them!

Plates piled high!

Gravy Toast! Vegetarian mushroom meets good old turkey gravy! Yum yum!

Not all of us could wait for dinner...MIKE.

As for David, he cooked arguably the BEST turkey in all of America this Thursday, and everyone pitched in and left us with food for at least a week--yay!

And the aftermath, we bask in the tryptophan glow...

Here's to a sparkly and warm Christmas Season full of , eggnoggy parties and PRESENTS and the Johnny Mathis masterpiece, "Marshmallow World" on repeat and most of all cozy homes filled with family and friends. Cheers!
