I have been so neglectful of my blog this past week. And shamefully I don't even have a proper excuse, other than 'tis the season, which I'm not sure really counts. I've been really caught up in the holiday hustle, but who isn't this time of year?

In Santa Barbara now, but before I left I got to pack in my final December days in the city with a last bit of New York Christmas cheer ... from a festive dinner at Park Avenue Winter to a seasonal snow storm, a holiday housewarming party and creative cocktails at Little Branch, to a cozy evening at The Lion and a Love Actually viewing with the girls, even a snowy sendoff flying out.
It is lovely to be home though. It's been four years since the last time I was home for Christmas, and just because the sun is shining and the temps are in the 70s does not mean that the festive fury is any less than in the East. 'Tis the Season is California as well. Not even here two full days and I've already had a night of tree trimming, Champagne by the fireplace, a holiday pizza party, and shopping galore.
I will do my best to fit in some posts here and there with holiday updates from SB and keep up my Instagram (which I've also neglected) with pretty pics of all the festivities. Hope all your holidays are happy and merry!
