Christmas Vacation

Adrian and I were both lucky enough to have a nice long Christmas break this year. We have been doing a good mix of work on the house, gallivanting around town, and absolutely nothing–which has been amazing. Here are a couple of the non-house related highlights from our break:

Christmas with my family and Adrian’s:

We took a Perryman Family trip to the Minnesota History Center to check out the exhibits:

We walked around Rice Park and St. Paul Central Library:

We took 3 separate trips to Union Depot–one to eat at Christo’s lunch buffet–which was bomb. It recently underwent extensive renovations.  I took about 100 photos. Here are some of my favorites–I was hard to narrow down which ones to use:

New Year’s Eve:  Adrian DJed a NYE party at a hotel. I took photos and ran some of the lighting.

And last but not least, my beautiful niece turned 3:


It was a wonderful, wonderful break.

Now back to the salt mines.
