(untitled 288)

Genuine. and I were both really excited to head home today. We've been looking forward to it for months, each of us. However, Portland, OR has been in the icy grip of a brutal winter storm for some time, so we were worried that our flight wouldn't be able to make it. Surprise - our flight was cancelled, along with every other flight in or out of Portland until Christmas afternoon. Kind of an unpleasant realization, but hey, that's the way it goes sometimes.

So we're spending our first Christmas together huddled inside around our four-foot tree, wishing we were at home. Welcome to adulthood.

Sad day. But it will always be a great story for your kids!

Luckily (you can say it with me, if you want), you have each other.

This "adulthood" you speak of... I don't much care for it.

We'll call you on Christmas morning. We're spending our Christmas morning solo as well.
