CUCINA CARA MIA.......Random thoughts from "my dear kitchen" about food, travel, Italy, San Diego and life!

Same day...different coast -the middle photos is my cousin's car almost covered up on Long Island....For all of my east coast (and midwest) friends and family, I wish you you a very Merry Christmas..and for the rest of you California folks...

I'm dreamin' of a warm Christmas

Unlike the one's I used to know

Where the palms trees wave

And flip-flops are still the rave

Even on December 25th

I'm dreamin' of a warm Christmas

With every beach I walk along

May your days be merry and warm

And may all your Christmases have no storm!

Happy Holidays!

thank you for the reminder of why I LOVE living in So Cal, the snow is beautiful but I am so grateful for walks on the beach Christmas day!
Merry Christmas!

Well...having lived through warm Christmases for the past 11 years...I am hankering for a bit of the white!

I love the lyrics! I usually love snow but I think we got just a wee bit more than I'm used to at the Jersey Shore. I mean, I've NEVER had my entire car buried!! She has been dug out, thanks to Mike and his mighty powers.

Have a very merry WARM Christmas!
xo, Laura

Fun pictures! I lived in the south for a long time and now that I am in the northeast again...I am loving the snow and coolness - especially at Christmas.

and a wonderfully warm Christmas you provided to all of us my love!!

Did you know I have that very same opening speech from Mandela on my desk and have had so for years - a true inspiration, as I hear the movie is - let's go see it!!

Love always,
