NYC Christmas Lights

I'm grateful for the peace and comfort we receive from our friends, family and faith.  The smells, sites, and traditions of Christmas remind me of the love I have in my life from all of these things. 

Last Friday I was able to continue one of my more recent traditions with visiting Bergdorf's windows and the tree at Rockefeller Plaza.  The windows are spectacular.

I tried to get closer to the tree but the crowds were killing me so I went in from the side and was satisfied with the photo I was able to get.

I was trying to get through quickly so I could get to the MOMA to visit The Scream by Edvard Munch.  It was hot and crowded in the museum but it was worth it to see this masterpiece. I never realized the beauty of the colors and it is powerful.

I also really liked his other works.  The one above is of his sister who was suffering from TB and the one below is called The Vampyr.

I then raced down to Brooklyn to meet with Suvi and Paul at Reynard in Williamsburg.  I wish I had taken a photo of them.  It was very dark in the restaurant but incredibly cozy.  Our only light was from the kitchen with this incredible wood burning fire.

I was still full from M. Wells but I had a lovely squash soup with a side of brussel sprouts.  All of us were really pleased with our dinners. 

And before we left, I made sure to visit the rooftop.  It was a foggy night but you can see Manhattan in the distant.
