So, on Christmas Eve I cooked for my family and a dear friend and I took Christmas Day OFF. I slept in and around noon I took the boys for a hike. I was planning on a mile or two but the day was glorious and we said "what the hell" and hiked the whole four mile loop at the Independence Trail.
It felt so good, water to play in, views and blue sky forever, happy laughing dogs and me, no stress, no rush. Make sure to click on these photos so you see the big version.
What a great gift.
