for now, short version: this has been the best holiday season e.v.e.r.
slightly longer version: this has been the best holiday season e.v.e.r. with Christmas Day with the darks, levitts, wileys and masons; a trip to the science museum with the dark and wiley kids; New Year's eve with friends and then sitting on the roof with Joel watching fireworks bursting over downtown Nashville at midnight; and new year's day saw us fly to Toronto for an awesome snowy 5 night stay with Ewan and family. 2010 back in nashville began with Joel getting an unexpected 2 days off work thanks to the big chill, a broken furnace and thus no heating on one the coldest nights of the year and that became one of the warmest thanks to the company of Geoff Little and Julie by the fire and surrounded by donated space heaters.
reports and photos from Toronto to follow later in the week (i stupidly forgot to pack a camera so ewan is sending some from his) but for now here's some faves. thanks to geoff and kari for sharing some of theirs, which follow after mine...
more of Christmas day from Geoff:

this place feels like home.
