hello, winter!

Winter is here. The time for quiet, contemplation, and candlelight. We have been enjoying this first day of winter, bundling up for walks with Kiki, cuddling on the couch, eating hearty meals, talking about the year that is almost finished and the year to come. 

Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments,
embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour.

John Boswell

Winter will be here for a while, and sometimes, when the cold air and leafless trees have been with us for a long time, I have to remind myself that this is the perfect chance for creativity, indoor projects, regeneration, and rebuilding faith. And I know winter will be sweet because I am sharing it with all of you.



  1. what beautiful photos! that bench is just so peaceful looking, i love it

  2. Love the photos - so very pretty and peaceful!

  4. oh! Having a bad day yet again and coming to visit you is just the little lift I always do it. I let out a little happy sigh when I finished reading...not too happy, as I am still not so, but a little moment there... Beautiful, beautiful photos - love the berries and the one of kiki...I think I may take time this christmas to reflect...and hopefully, I'll reflect and then tuck it all away somewhere and gather my strength together and move forward. xxx
