~ tiptoeing towards Christmas

cold mornings & warm nights {weather for wearing stockings to church},
twinkle lights in hearts{brightening dark nights},
a wealth of color ~ {especially those colors befitting the Season ~ raspberry red & verdant green, with a dash of aubergine},
& a conversation with a math professor about the Fibonacci Sequence & the music of the Primes
sending Lovely Christmas warmth!!!

~ to be a part of,

so thankful we can choose to bask in all that this magical time of year can bring,
{& hoping to create these precious moments for others!}


~ painting moments,

filling the brushstrokes of our days with roses,

& dreaming in moments a lot over here 

~ this bounty,

this thanksgiving has been bountiful in so many wonders & treasures,

in gratitude, for the long journey & where we've climbed{they say the climb is hardest nearest the summit}
for sisters & dear ones, where're they may be,
for gold paint & window shopping,
for softness of moments{especially because the weeks leading up to, & the days directly after, have been filled with Quite! an amount of heartache{think moving house, several trips to hospital, severe prolonged back pain from hauling heavy things, 
& many other things too tender to post.. .

because this blog is not where i post my personal hardships,

this blog is where i post my hope

& so.. .}
for 24 hours, there was respite ~ a long, deep breath under starry skies & {what felt like} candlelit dinner parties, with warm fires & gold flecks of paint swirling upon pages
~ & it was in that moment, i Shimmered ~
gratitude aswirl & awhir 
in it's beauty & longevity of life

so today, i bundle some of these little pearls up, 
& send them to you,

with Love
