A Note to Family, Friends, and Colleagues

We're sitting in Cafe Verite, and to tell you the truth, it's been a little over the top lately, living here in the wild and woolly Pacific Northwest. November broke the records for wettest month on record since 1898; then Seattle broke the record for the deepest freeze early in the season, and as you may have heard, after hurricane-force winds, we are now going on 48 hours without power in our home.

Not to worry! We are safe. We are finding ways to stay warm, dry, and fed. We broke into the 100-pack of tea lights for $4.95 from IKEA, and Home Depot was giving away free firewood. The wee beasties have doubled-up on sweaters, and we've showered at Steve's office and my yoga studio.

Even now, we are eating a gingerbread cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, reflecting on what an amazing year 2006 has been. What we're trying to say here is that we are truly blessed. We wish the same for you, for the holidays and always. We want to take this quiet time to thank all of you for making this year such a good one, at work and play. We lift our free trade, organic soy chai teas to you and toast:
