This morning the husband and I are headed to Ft. Lauderdale for a week (instead of giving each other Christmas and birthday presents, etc., we go on trips)! We are looking forward to warm weather and seeing many friends who either live in the area or who, like us, like to vacation there. We will be staying at a gay guest house and using it as our base of operations. We will have Christmas dinner with friends from Newport News who have a gorgeous home in Ft. Lauderdale. We have at least two dining events planned for the Lauderdale Yacht Club with clients of mine and the husband (our Hampton Yacht Club membership provides nice reciprocal benefits!). We also hope to do some shopping and find some special tuxedo jackets to wear to the Inaugural Ball in Richmond on January 13th in Richmond (we will be going up to Richmond on the 6th to give the governor elect a haircut).
On the home front, a friend will be staying at our home and house sitting and dog sitting for us. It works best all around. On the blogging front, I will be posting to the extent our social engagements and relaxing by the pool/on the beach permits.
