I know I've been pretty light on posting lately, but for those of you still checking in, please send me your positive energy, as more snow is in the forecast and I have to get home to Portland tomorrow morning.
Also, wanted to update you that I have successfully completed my pre-India Christmas shopping and I did it all with local merchants.
There were a couple of things I couldn't find, but I substituted other perfectly fine gifts. After the holiday I'll try and post where and what all I bought. I definitely want to prove to you that this IS possible so you can try it next year.
