Niles and I went to the Christkindl market this weekend! It had been at least a few years since I’d been – I don’t live or work near downtown, so I rarely get a chance to wander around downtown Chicago. But it’s gorgeous down there in December, all lit up and festive. And the whole Christkindl Market smells like sausage and donuts and potato pancakes and schnitzel and chocolate and spicy mulled wine, it’s heavenly. Unfortunately I wasn’t all that hungry when we were there, but we did enjoy some little ceramic boots of delicious glühwein.

Hey, there’s less than a week to go on the Kickstarter! I’m funded (hooray!), so I don’t really need any more pledges, but pledging IS the best way to get the book at $5.00 off the eventual cover price, so that’s a nice deal.
