December was all twinkle lights and cups of cocoa. Long plane rides and long train rides. Work interrupted by flutes of mulled wine and office parties in flapper dresses and sequins. Breaks for mince pies and card tricks. Sparkly evenings crowded around wooden tables, giggling and talking and pretending to be more put-together than two glasses of white wine allows. It was a fun and predictable whirlwind. Yet as photographs often do, it seems quieter captured stationary on film – milky winter light glimmering through holly leaves, a carousel frozen in time, a static rose in what was really a bustling city restaurant. And despite the black nights and blue-lit mornings, these pictures show a December that was all light and sparkle. And that’s how I’ll remember it too.
I hope you had a sparkling start to 2015, too. More musings and pictures and tales to come on that too, but I couldn’t let December pass without a little word. Hope yours was twinkly and lovely too. xo
