Hi again




sums it up pretty well via oh lover

Been a bit out of it, in the swirl that has been the Gifted Market down in Soho. Or maybe it's Noho. Haven't gotten outside much but I know it's incredibly cold when I am out there. In the mornings there are big slushtastic puddles that turn into ice-rinks at night. But the people keep pouringthrough the door. I've met so many nice people, watched it snow from the inside out, and hopefully will have made many people happy with new shiny bonbons for the holidays. The artists, designers, vintage goods sellers and food purveyors (think amazing chocolate creations and homemade beer brewing kits) have outfitted me for Christmas, so this winter I have truly bought handmade and local all the way.

Today is my last day there. We'll pack up tonight and I can think about my Christmas eve menu! I'm not exactly sure what that exclamation point is doing there because I'm, to be honest, really tired. But rolling prosciutto around wilted escarole and baking pear tarts sounds pretty relaxing. And maybe drinking this with Jim all the while. How are you at this year's end?

Just think, you've been oh so productive--almost productive enough for the two of us :) I'm off to go see a movie and hopefully finish off my Christmas wrapping. I hope you get some truly extraordinary down time over the holiday, my dear!
