Home for the holidays

Georgia Wreath

Christamas is coming early for me this year. Due to my bottom of the totem pole position at work, I’m required to work on Christams eve and day. Up until a week ago, I didn’t know if I would be able to travel back home at all. Happily, I have off for the next five days. Whoosh! Off to Madison I go. I can’t wait to see everyone at home.

This will be my first holiday, really my first time ever, of “traveling home”. I’ve always lived in the same city as my family and I must admit to having some romantic notions of this whole “home for the holidays” idea. With all the snow they are getting this week, at least there will be plenty of White Christmas action.

SB and I have been enjoying the Christmas decorations in our neighborhood, as seen above. It seems so strange to have evergreen wreaths and trees still in full fall reglia. Such is the south. For more fall photos of Georgia, see my latest postings to my gallery.


  1. enjoy the trip home! having been in a similar situation when i went home the first time for winter break during my first year of grad school, it was really nice. the one thing i would warn is that being pulled back and forth can be quite jolting. enjoy the visit and be ready for it to be difficult to return to Georgia.

    Or, maybe that won’t be your experience at all! Happy holidays!

  2. It was so lovely to see you both! Wish there was more time for siting around and watching Felicity together. I’ll be thinking of you as I hit the hay tonight.
    love, ms. r
