We're packing up and heading The OC tomorrow for a lovely 3 week stay. We'll kick it off with a week at our favorite Laguna Beach sublet 3 blocks from the beach where we spent all of January, then head home to Mission Viejo to spend Christmas with my family, where our little elf Gus will be handing out and opening presents that aren't his. He loves presents.We'll spend some time in SD and LA visiting friends, then ring in 2012 with Kaskade at Marquee Las Vegas which I am very excited about..can't really think of a more fun place to be for New Year's than in the VIP of an amazing club with the #1 DJ in America, who goes on at 11:59 pm and may just spin for the following 12 hours. After a relaxing little getaway in Vegas including a stop at my favorite spa, Qua, lots of good food and luxuriating, we'll have a few more days of fun in the sun in early Jan before returing to the tundra. It's been really nice to be home for a month, seeing lots of good friends, staying cozy in the loft with the Christmas tree, candles, playing Christmas songs on the piano and having crackling fires in the fireplace, but I am freezing, sick of being stuck inside with a very active toddler and ready to see the sun. Bring it.
