"Winter came down to our home one night. Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slipper of snow. And we, we were children once again."
-Bill Morgan Jr.
My favourite time of year has arrived. Wondrous Christmas. The days are shorter and the nights longer and I sit by the fire sketching and read until the early hours of the morning by the light of the glorious Christmas tree. Today is December the 1st and I've no idea where this year has gone! But this month is truly one of my favourites. Yes, Summer does pull my heartstrings more than I can bear but once Christmas rolls round I feel content and at home and all I want to do is be around everyone I adore and feel the warmth of this perfect season.
This week my mum and I decorated the house and it became a glowing wonderland. The Christmas music plays constantly and I feel all warm inside. Last weekend shopping and galavanting around with friends was completely brilliant. That's really something I live for. Especially this month when it just feels easier and more cosy and welcoming to be with adored friends and family when you have a fire and a twinkling tree by your side.
Tomorrow night will be a glamorous night. I shall get all dressed up in a sparkling dress and lovely ladies and myself shall go and see the Nutcracker ballet. It will be utterly magical and dreamy. I am so very excited to watch a ballet right in front of me, especially during this glamorous and sparkling time of year.
Dreaming of cookie bakes, cuttings snowflakes to hang from my ceiling, and beginning to purchase Christmas gifts.
Hoping your days have been beautiful and divine!
Enjoy the weekend. Cosy up by the fire or enjoy a classy dinner out.
