Merry Christmas!

The picture above was taken by my good friend Sherry Page, who is currently sampling every macaron-adorned Bûche de Noël that she encounters in Paris.

Christmas is a spiritual time for reflection, gratitude and for me personally - compassion. For as much joy that is being filled in our hearts, I hope that everyone is imbibing the magic and wonder of this holiday too.

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope the New Year brings much happiness and prosperity to your families!

Avec l'amour,

Christine
