{snow & mistletoe}



. . . at this moment, red lipstick and a long sweep of silk taffeta, and excitement uncontained for a few days away . . . and there will be lingering soirées and champagne, laughter by firelight and snow and mistletoe . . . but first, hello & farewell and thank you so very much for reading all this time, for wonderfully thoughtful comments and beautifully written emails {& all the lovely holiday cards!} and for spending a part of your mornings & days caught up in the thoughts & musings here . . . wishing you holidays enveloped in warmth & laughter, family & friends, and most of all, love, love, love and arms to hold you tight on these late december nights . . .

a very merry christmas to you & the most happiest of holidays,
~ roséline xo
