Wishing you all a warm winter’s Christmas eve…

and every possible other holiday or reason to celebrate

And for those that are tracking Santa here

Dust off your best finery…

Last year’s will do…

or perhaps something a bit older…

Red wool riding coat c. 1810

Hope you are gathered with your dearest…

family, friends, fowl, feline, or a feisty pup or two

Whether you are in the Grand Salon of the Hôtel d’Orrouer in Paris

with Louis XVI style candelabras…

Or somewhere in the snow drifted plains of the mid-west

Gathered around card tables in cozy conversations…

Pull out, set, and pour your best…

Linger over a bouche or a trifle or a crème brûlée

And know that you are loved, connected, that you matter…

And to all a good night….
