Home for the Holidays – Homewood, IL

Back home in Chicago for the holidays! 

This year’s a bit different with my brother Jonathan in Africa and a number of others missing from the Safran family party; but for the most part the usual “home for the holiday” traditions still apply.   I’ve eaten WAY way too many christmas cookies,  stuffed myself during a marathon of family parties, not to mention gotten my fill of Aurelio’s (a local favorite) pizza.  All during my current indoor hibernation state, a direct result from freezing my bones running outside earlier this week.    The fact that I’m supposed to show-up on a beach in the BVIs (bikini-clad) seems to have escaped me.    Ahhh, but it’s all worth it.  A few pictures thus far…… 

…  Merry Christmas from our family to yours…

I must admit, though, that after five days in the frozen tundra known as Chicago and I’m just about ready for some Caribbean Sun …

Happy Holidays!
