Christmas in SoCal

Christmas in SoCal

This was a weird Christmas for us: the first when our trio wasn’t together and our first as a duo in Southern California. So we did something new and different. I’m lucky enough to have my sister live just down the street, so on Christmas Eve, we went to her (bigger and nicer) home and…
