What a lovely, lovely weekend. Friday, I hiked all over the UWS in search of a tree–finally settling on one at the tree stand across the street. I had some friends over for a little tree-trimming party and champagne punch on Saturday night. The tree is a delight.

And it’s Advent, again. My favorite church season. The best hymns. And I like the reminder to wake up and be aware. It’s easy to forget–especially among the hustle and bustle of New York and holiday shopping and overflowing inboxes. So anyway, happy Advent!
