For as long as I can remember, I have been home in Seattle for the holidays enjoying our trademark Cahoon traditions. These include joining the happy throngs celebrating nightly at Snowflake Lane.
enjoying Christmas dinner at the stunning, historic Fairmont Olympic,
riding the downtown carousal,
sipping hot chocolate while wandering in and out of the vendors at Pike Place Market, and being a Secret Santa to a family in need.
This marks the first year that I will not be able to join in those traditions. I’m working over the holidays as an anchor, reporter, and producer for CBS NewsChannel 5, but I still feel like I’m home for the holidays. It’s just a new home…Wyoming…and with new friends who have become like family, and new traditions!
Throughout this holiday season, I’ve had fun exploring one of my favorite towns, Fort Collins, Colorado. I take a dance class there every week, and afterwards, I usually have dinner in the old, historic section of town. Then I take a walk through this magical land of cobblestones overhung with lights and beautiful skies.
At this time of year, festive decorations and Santa villages add to the charm.
On Christmas Eve, I’ll be anchoring two shows with some of the best co-workers anyone could ever have…and we will be broadcasting to one of the most loving communities I’ve ever experienced.
