Dominic and I caught a last-minute flight to California on Christmas Eve, departing New Zealand at 2:30 pm and arriving in San Francisco at 7:00 am the same morning. Knowing that Helios is docked safely in Whangarei with friends nearby to keep an eye on her, we spent a blissful Christmas swaddled in holiday cheer with my family in the East Bay, before driving north toward Dominic's hometown, Weaverville.

Though the reasons for our travel are melancholy, we're treasuring this time with our families and enjoying the icy brightness of the mountain-scape beyond the Dolci's living room window.
