I finally made it home to Oregon in time for Christmas this year – absolutely a miracle! It is so wonderful to share some time with my family and relax after a crazy holiday season in the retail industry.
What I also love about coming home as an adult are some of the new Christmas traditions we’ve developed. My favorite of these new traditions is our annual Stone Crab feast. Three years ago I sent my father three pounds of Stone Crab as a Christmas gift and I’ve been doing it ever since. Stone Crabs are a treat you can’t find in the Pacific Northwest, so it’s become a very special meal for all of us. I will never eat a Stone Crab again without thinking of my father and Christmas in Oregon.
