december! already?! i swear just yesterday i was elated the moment the clock struck midnight and i could yelp: october! but alas, 2011's final month is upon us and i'm super into it. (i'd say it'll be a december to remember but i think there's some sort of car dealer embargo on my use of that phrase.) to properly usher in the next 25 days and all their festive splendor, i caught yet another airplane and landed in 40 degree weather last night. a far, far cry from the tropical paradise i spent thanksgiving in. (the photo above says it all; i was bare-legged when i took it!) pretty excited by the possibility of a white christmas, and until then i'll shower you with photos of every christmas tree i walk past, from whatever city i happen to find myself in next. happy december, friends!
