I am grateful for the little island I live on which has wrapped its arms around me and my family for many years. Balboa Island is home. As I took a walk at dusk a couple of nights ago I saw that the Christmas traditions are in full swing here! Our street lights are lit and decorated, adorned with red bows, lights and garland our island bridge greets us, and the store fronts are welcoming with their warm Christmas charm. While we all have our own personal family traditions we love and look forward to each year, there is something comforting as one walks along our festive sidewalks. I believe it is the sense of community and our excitement to revisit these traditions year after year on our beloved island. Come and join us!

Have a beautiful week!
