Lys had to work on Thanksgiving morning so Ash and I threw on some clothes and decided to grace the coffee shop with our presence as well! On our way to the shop we passed pieces of sheet music papering the sidewalk, so our imaginations went wild envisioning all the reasons why there would be Russian piano music tossed around.
After meeting Lys around noon back at the apartment, we dressed up and went to A Dickens Christmas at Cow Palace. What fun to stroll the snowy streets of London, transported back in time to Victorian days.
The shops sold everything from brooms to parasols to candy and jewelry.
Singers, dancers and merchants were all in full costume, but even many guests got into the spirit and attended in period costume!
It's the season of warmth and love -- my favorite season of all!
