It has ALWAYS been a dream of mine to go to the Christmas Tree lighting in Rockerfeller Center in New York.... unfortunately New York is kinda a long drive from San Diego. Instead, every year I attend the Carlsbad Christmas Tree lighting at the Forum shopping center. Its definitely not the same, but for now it will have to do. There is just something so fun and cozy about being in a long coat, scarf, and gloves with a big cup of coffee (or tea for me :-) and listening to carolers while a HUGE tree is lit by Santa. It's moments like these that make life fun. Well, I'm off to join in on the festivities.... life is too short not to act like a kid sometimes!
