Incredibly beautiful/sunny/warm day here in Colorado today, so obviously these photos are from another place and time. I made a quick trip to Portland for Christmas and had to revisit the fireplace that came to have so much meaning over the past year. I have yet to find such a perfect spot here but I suppose these things come with time.
I start the new year with something I plan to have forever - a Pendleton blanket. Christmas and the New Year are fine but what I will continue to celebrate over the next few months are the extra moments of daylight with every rotation of the earth. I plan to spend the next month recuperating from the incredible insanity and movement of 2011, wrapped in this blanket in my nest in the Rockies.
