Now and then I've been glancing at my husband's progress toward Istanbul... and now he has landed. He'll be there for a bit before flying on to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, land of Himalayas and snow leopards and ibex and yurts. If you are a follower of this blog, you probably already know that I married a man of adventure. He got up in the small hours and drove to JFK in the blizzard, and only went off the road twice...
I'm missing him already, and so I'm posting some images of the at-home part of Christmas. This was the first Christmas we were not all together as a family, as our eldest child was in North Carolina with Mamama, my mother.
Good night, world--you are so big, so small.
