Merry Christmas! My wife and I typically take a last minute trip somewhere for a couple days over the Christmas holiday, and this year it was Lake Tahoe. The lake is spectacular in any season, but surrounded by snowcaps is my personal favorite. This year there was about 20" of fresh powder on the ground, but it was sunny while we were there. We did pretty much nothing except sleep in, sit by the fireplace at the lodge, sip pinot and eat seared ahi at the Lone Eagle watching the sunset over the lake, and reflect on the past year and plan for the next. No crowds, no presents, no schedules, no commitments. Recalibration, reconnection, and simplicity.
Here’s wishing you and yours a healthy, peaceful, and prosperous 2008!
