Katie Green Bean is having a lovely giveaway, I've yet to read "The Green Bean" but hoping I win it, so I can finally admire all her lovely artwork.

Either way, I'd like it to leave (I'd consider it an early Christmas present!) I'm taking off to Paradise, California for the holidays to spend it with my family. It's my first Christmas that I've lived in Oregon, and I can't say I'm looking forward to the drive. But I've got my chains in the car, and these are just some of the memories from last year -
