I wrote about my first family Christmas in California, three days after I had left Paris with my baby daughter to join my husband. Although many years have passed and we are now celebrating the holidays in a very American way, I haven’t forgotten this very first Christmas in a land that I had only visited once before.
P.S. The photos were not taken in Palo Alto in 1990 (my eyes weren’t big enough to even focus on a camera that night). I took them a couple of years ago when I visited Christmas Tree Lane in Fresno, CA, one of the most stunning holiday displays in the country.
I wish you all a Peaceful and Loving Holiday Season and invite you to read Solveig’s posts until Christmas. Like me she is from another place and now makes her home in…Paris.
