It has been so long. Hello, friends. I used to feel so disappointed when I would look at the blogs I love most, those I follow and adore, and not see a new post. But I get it - totally get it. Things in life, at work, all of it, things have been so busy, so often unpredictable, so much so that giving up the things I enjoy best, connecting with a small group of other loyal blogger friends, just had to be pushed to the side for a little while. Things are still super busy, and I managed to make a small success of my little caramel business (for which I am thrilled!), which has kept me in the kitchen night and day (when not at my regular job) until midnight each day, a few very big deadlines upcoming. But I’ve been missing this little space where I can think out loud and share. So today in a little free time, I wanted to share with you a handful of images I’ve been finding beautiful of late. The sparkly things (there is a small 4-year old little girl still living inside me, I swear - I love shiny things!) are a nod to the upcoming holiday season (my hope: to escape the caramel kitchen at least a couple of times in the next several weeks to go to the ballet, to celebrate with lights, to be be.). Those shoes are magic, the lighting exquisite. I’d love a whole month full of these magical little details, the special light, the warmth and coziness of what this season can be. Here’s wishing each of you a magical and sparkly month ahead.
