It was back to work today...but holiday memories dance in my head...

Hubby and I had been planning this holiday trip for months.
Departure from Aberdeen was scheduled for 5:20 a.m.
and on that morning it was well below zero.

I know de-icing is important...however...
they were de-icing ... and then de-icing some more.
Our departure was delayed by 40 minutes...
so, we missed our connecting flight in Minneapolis.

We took a little time to relax and refresh...

And camp out at our gate!


Thank goodness, we got on the next flight.

They don't mess around in Minneapolis.
De-icing was a snap and we were on our way again.

And our new seat assignments?
First class!
Complementary beverages and complementary lunch.
Can you spell L.U.C.K.Y. ??

The rest of our flight was smooth goin'...

And, finally, we were with family in Boston...
enjoying a bite to eat at the East End Grill.

Then, enjoying some game-day snacks and 
cheering for the New England Patriots with Emily and Jake.

So much more to share..
Stay tuned!

Take care,
~Natalie

WoW! First Class!
I do not miss the snow at all...it was 68 degrees in S.F! walked on the Embarcadero in shorts...but we do need the rain.

Glad you got to visit with your family :)
Happy New Year!
