I am feeling especially thankful this Christmas as this is the first time ever that I am hosting family.  Yesterday,  a friend asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I quickly said, "nothing".  And I thought to myself - hmm, it is uncommon for me to not list at least a couple of things.  And then it hit me, my family coming to visit DC is the best gift that I've received to date.

Wishing all of my readers, a holiday filled with cheer and the warmth of being surrounded by family...Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
