Christmas Lights

From the sublime to the ridiculous... I'm far behind in reading a manuscript & holiday prep & everything.

Friday a friend & I went to a garden of lights. I expected to love it; it was more wonderful than I'd hoped. The word magical is so overused; this was a fairytale come to life. It finally felt like the holidays. If you live near something similar, I urge you to go. I wish there were really good larger photographs to show.

Sparkly holiday Paris is my laptop wallpaper of late. Very cheerful in the 7am shadows. You can get the link to the large size on Giulia Geranium. And of course, what would the holidays be without the continuing showdown between inanimate fairy lights & Julie? With some flower garlands tossed onto the pic?

I cannot believe it is 10.56pm on the last Sunday before Christmas. Back soon. Cheers!

Ha ha. I love lights at the holidays more than most people, so thanks. I'll be in Paris, too, though I don't go to the Champs very often, really. Happy Christmas!

I went to a festival of lights with my kids on Friday. It was beautiful. We followed it by a trip to the symphony. With the lights and the music, it finally felt like Christmas.

The cat looks enthralled & bewitched. Crossing her paws in pleasure. She must be a Christmas cat!

The lights do look magical :-)
