A Winter Wonderland
We awoke this morning to a glorious winter wonderland. It snowed overnight, blanketing the cove and its surrounding forests in a gown of white. And then, poof! It was gone. There are some serious wind gusts bustling around today and they, coupled with some intense morning sunlight, have just about blown and melted everything away at this point. That’s fine. Huxley got to see it, and it put me in a festive mood, so much so that I felt spiced apples and multigrain waffles on a snowy Wednesday seemed in order, so that’s just what we did!
The scene outside reminded me of a party we hosted here back on December 22nd. It wasn’t snowing then, but the theme of that gathering was “Winter Wonderland.” My friends showed up with their finest duds on, delectable seasonal foods to share, and a general sense of camaraderie, merriment, and love. Jen shared a few of the images from the party with me this morning, and, feeling all giddy and excited from the snow, I felt like sharing a little glimpse of our revelry with you here today.
I’m so excited about how this book is shaping up. I’ve got a big stack of papers beside me, the manuscript for “Handmade Gatherings”, to look over and check for any last errors. Roost has been nothing short of magnificent to work with and their expert guidance, partnered up with Jen’s glorious photos, is a perfect match! I can’t wait to view the images of the overall design and aesthetic. I know they’re gonna bring the awesome!
