Christmas Skies

I hope you all had a beautiful holiday (or weekend, if you don't celebrate Christmas)! We had the typical quiet, peaceful time, which I believe Christmas is all about. We went down to the beach on Christmas day to commune with the oceanscape and wave to our cousins in Ireland (to whom we had just wished a Merry Christmas on the phone)! I am so taken by the skies this year - never before have I ever noticed and been in awe of the stunning skies we have here in Maine (Maria Alexandra Vettese created scarves from images of the Maine summer sky). The first picture is one I took of the moon on Christmas Eve night - the most magical night of the year! 


  1. I've always heard I should visit Maine...and when I ask why, they always say, "You just have to see." I think they're right :)

  2. So, so beautiful! It sounds like a perfect and peaceful Christmas weekend! And I am absolutely thrilled that your mom loved the necklace; that really makes me happy! Have a wonderful week, my friend! xoxo
