a blue christmas - or at least a blue winter

our winter wonderland is providing the most incredible shades of blue and grey. it's positively enchanting. all photos taken today.







i've been cooking up a storm. check out the cake here (you too can look like a pro without actually being one). tomorrow, we head for our annual christmas party over on the devil's island. i can't wait. i've even invented a new cocktail for the occasion (i'll share it if it succeeds - but think asti and pomegranates).

wishing everyone a fabulous weekend. catch ya on the other side...

Perfect. Cold makes the snow blue. I was thinking this as I plowed mountains of it on Sunday in sub-zero temps. I thought about how it is blue.

Beautiful! How amazing you have so much snow and you are only an hour south of me.;)
Our snow was almost gone but I woke up to a new layer this morning.;)
Have a great weekend and if I do not get a chance to say it later - Merry Christmas dear Julie,
