Christmas is over and we wait for 2009 to come to an end and the new year of 2010 to begin. It always amazes me how quickly the holidays pass. The house along with Mike and I are recovering from the celebration of Christmas. No need to rush around this week. I had hoped to make it into the city at some point. I love to visit downtown and walk along Michigan Avenue during the Christmas season. The hustle and bustle is exciting for a little while and then it's nice to return to the quiet of home. There won't be time this year.
We are preparing to leave for the Northwoods of Wisconsin on Wednesday. Several family members are traveling up to Camp Nawakwa again to spend a few days amongst the beauty of the wintry woods. This area has a distinctive look during each season. The winter is can be fierce, but absolutely beautiful.
Just as the family has shared a week in August each summer up north, it has become a tradition to spend New Year's Eve there.
