This year I've been uncharacteristically festive for the holidays. Perhaps it's because Mr. Z and I are staying home (our home in Brooklyn) this year. I'm usually the scrooge type not wanting to do anything related to holiday festivities, but this year we got a tree AND we went to the Nutcracker ballet! Whoa - not to mention that I cooked a rack of lamb too. Now if only we can get snow out here on the east coast... Anyhow, happy holidays to you all!
