My sister and brother-in-law won’t be able to make it out for Christmas this year. But Lori has been having to work in Vancouver, British Columbia off and on for the last couple of months. Since it’s only about 100 miles away, Matt and I went up to visit her this week. My brother-in-law flew out as well, and we had a nice holiday gathering with the four of us!
Mostly we ate, drank, and caught up with each others’ lives. Isn’t that one of the best parts of the holidays?
We also visited the amazing Granville Island Public Market, open until 7pm, year-round. I love our Pike Place Market here in Seattle, but boy the Vancouver market is a whole other level of goodness!

In the evening, we settled in and talked, laughed, and partook of our newest holiday tradition: Panetone and local dessert wine. What a wonderful vacation!!
I will be back tomorrow to answer all your wonderful comments, questions, and emails over the last several days!
