It's strangely quiet now after two weeks of a full house filled with the sounds of, well... just family. It's amazing how one gets used to the ambient noise of chatting, xboxing, guitar-playing, cooking that was present during the two weeks when family was here visiting & spending the festive season with us in chilly Beijing.
The below freezing temperatures were not enough to temper the hearty warmth generated by family love & togetherness.
Home truly is, where your heart is...& mostly, one's heart is where one's family is, no matter where you are geographically.
Have a Happy 2008 everyone.
