In what will likely be my last post of 2010, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone, at home and abroad, for their kind words and encouragements throughout the year; particularly those related to this project. It's an endeavour I take a lot of pleasure from, of course, but it's always great to hear when it brightens your day.
I'm feeling especially festive this year, as our blanket of snow is still in good shape almost a week later. And now that the streets are finally somewhat passable -- they don't really understand plowing here, no matter what they say -- only its benefits remain: seeing your breath as you get a good pace going, the beautiful snow-covered treetops, kids and dogs (and 'adults') frolicking about, rosy cheeks, the list goes on.
But never fear; the press have a new bogeyman in the wings, as "Frozen Britain" peters out: "The Big Thaw" looms!
Oh well; I'm sure we'll survive. Check back soon for stories from our last Christmas market trip of 2010, to Prague, Czech Republic, and have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
