Do you think the grass is always greener on the other side? The shot below of my living room made me a little nostalgic for a warm and cozy holiday experience in DC. I'm imagining enjoying a classic Old Fashioned with brandied cherries by the fireplace as the snow softly falls outside. But here I am, home in Hawaii, surrounded instead by the warmth of the Aloha Spirit, enjoying time with family. Not bad. Today I'll be on Lanikai beach with old friends. Perhaps there will be a champagne lilikoi cocktail in my near future... Bloom where you're planted and enjoy this holiday season, all!
