Christmas in the City

Merry Christmas! Here we are posing in front of two different trees, two different years. The first is in New York, two years ago, when Jonathan proposed and the second picture was taken this weekend in San Francisco. I can’t believe it’s already been two years since we got engaged!
We’d been planning a Christmas shopping trip to San Francisco for weeks and I saved all my shopping to do for one crazy afternoon. In all, we had a good time. From Sacramento it’s really easy to take BART into the city and then you don’t have to deal with traffic and parking. We did have to deal with crowds of mad shoppers though and that isn’t my favorite part of the holiday season. The best part of the night was dinner at a little Thai restaurant. We felt like we were back in China…the fried rice was sooooooo good! This morning I was up early to meet Sharon at the park for a run. For the very first time in my entire life I couldn’t drive because my windshield was covered in ice!! Yes, I know I am a spoiled California girl, but really, I had no idea what to do! Time was ticking away, I was late and my heater was not helping the ice to melt. So, I did what all other ignorant Californians would do…I got a big glass of hot water and dumped it all over the glass. I later learned that isn’t such a good idea. Fortunately my windshield didn’t crack! I made it to the park but Sharon wasn’t there so I took one freezing cold mile on my own before running straight to her house to find refuge from the cold. I ended up joining the party– Jeremiah was already there to meet Sam, Justin Zoradi and Jonathan for breakfast. What a nice surprise! I love having friends in town!

  1. […] We took in New York that weekend in a way I will never forget: a carriage ride through Central Park, FAO Shwartz, The Rockettes’ Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall, Macys, The Met, Ground Zero, the Empire State Building. It was, to sound cliche, a whirlwind of romance and adventure. The best part is that five years later, it remains as so.  I love my husband for wanting to give me a surprise I could never have hoped for or dreamed of myself. Pictures here. […]
