We did finally make it to Indiana for the holidays after 24 hours of waiting in lines, flying, staying in a hotel at O’Hare, and then that last little 20 minute flight from Chicago to South Bend. We had a lovely time with our families and friends. We’ll put some of our pictures on Flick’r soon.
In the meantime, I’m happy to be back in Portland. I have a lot of work I need to do to get ready for the next trimester at PSU (classes start next week, aackk!). So today I took my laptop down to my new-favorite coffeeshop, Caffe Pallino, and here I sit, warm and cozy on a dreary, wet day (my favorite kind of day). The coffee here is Caffe Umbria. Yum. This picture is actually from the original Caffe Umbria in Seattle. May you also be warm and dry and caffeinated.
