Santa Barbara Christmas

Coming home to sunny, but chilly wind weather with palm trees swaying outside and sitting by a crackling fire inside, assembled trees with aged family ornaments, time spent with childhood best friends, large stocking hanging in the windows, traditional breakfast of lox and bagels with fresh orange juice with fruit from the backyard tree, and a bit of a mishap Christmas dinner with no electricity, but which made the night feel more festive with dinner and laughs in candlelight and by the fireplace.
