There may not be a single wrapped gift or decorated tree in sight here on the blog…but a “winter wonderland” photo-shoot like this really does have a kind of seasonal magic, doesn’t it?!  Never mind how dang cold it was out there – or the fact that I was dressed for a Starbucks drive-though, not an impromptu walk in the woods! – the festive pop of my red cardigan against that blanket of white instantly says “it’s Christmastime!!”

Does this mean I’m finally convinced that a snow-covered holiday is the only way to go??  I’m afraid not (one of my most favourite Christmases was celebrated on a tropical beach!) but I’ll certainly admit to seeing the romance of this classic sentiment when I’m snug on the couch in front of our living-room window, watching the snow fall outside.

And now, whether it’s about the snow, or warm sand and palm trees, or somewhere in-between – may you be surrounded by the love of family and friends…and may this be your merriest Christmas yet!!

    Merry Christmas to you too, from down in sunny Arizona! It's actually supposed to rain all weekend and the snow level in our mountains will barely be above our valley floor–so we will have abundant snow to look at. But thankfully not right here in town.
    May your holiday be full of love and sparkles!

    Wow, these photos are amazing, Monika! The snow is amazing and you look gorgeous! Snow is so pretty, but yeah, I'm a California girl for sure. When it's 55 degrees here, I feel like it's the end of the world and no one could possibly survive anything colder than that! ;P Adore you & looking forward to another year of following your blog!

    Thanks so much for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday! Hope your holidays have been magical!
