if only in my dreams... An old favorite Christmas song. Growing up I heard it every year and never thought too much about it. But now it means more. I love Christmas. It's my favorite holiday. Just really, really wish I could spend it with my family in Colorado. It's also the hardest time of the year to be so far away from "home."
The last time I was home for the holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) was the year Reo was born. Since he was born in July we couldn't make our annual summer trip home, so we went for winter break instead.
Every year since then I've wished we could do it again. Maybe some year we will be able to. In the meantime, I guess I'll just listen to old Christmas carols and try to bring the holiday to life here in Japan for my own children. But my heart will be in Colorado.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
