Christmastime, holiday parties, ugly sweaters, (ugly shirts), lights, booze, gluttony, laughter, and most importantly a mandatory time for those to take work off to be with loved ones even if only for a few days. I find myself falling more in love with Beijing as the more time I spend here, yet also more in love with the Pacific Northwest. My dad told me that when one goes somewhere new, it’s only natural to feel a longing/miss in your heart for your place departed, but if you choose to spend and invest enough time in your new space, those feelings slowly shift over to where you have chosen to call the new place home. At least this is when he knew home for him was the Pacific Northwest I often wonder where and when I will have a place to call home of my own, but for now my heart’s still yours Seattle ;)
Here are some shots on Christmas day and the ugly sweater/shirt party-- YEAH GLUTTONY!!
