Snow, snow, snow

Trafoi is situated right in the middle of a National Park so if you are lucky early mornings, or late afternoon you might get to see some of these wonderful creatures:

 This year all the lifts were open and it is wonderful views everywhere you look:

Funny how much brighter and lighter the world seems to be when it is covered in snow!

Italian Alps

 This little village is at the beginning of a long winding road up to Trafoi,
 and everywhere you look there is majestic big mountains, -with snow.
Being in Italy you'll find crucifix's on every corner, 
 nice and rustic, this bakery has got the best Florentine's I've ever had.
 Old and new mixing well
 Finally up the hill at Hotel Tannenheim we are greeted by this view:
Can't wait to strap on that snowboard tomorrow :-)

A Christmas invite....

I haven't been home to celebrate Christmas for a couple of years now, opting instead of celebrating it in the Italian Alps with no stress, good friends, plenty of snow and no dishes!

However, for my family and friends I don't get to see I'd like to invite you to my imaginary Xmas:
 Where the Xmas table is immaculately laid with the finest porcelain plates and silverware,
The Xmas tree is lit,

 and the house is filled with Xmas decorations.
 Outside it is snowing, off course,
 so the fireplace inside is warming and welcoming...
 so that we can all wear pretty dresses.
Have a wonderful pre Christmas time everyone.

Lots of love

It's been a long time...

Taking advantage of some sun in London I took my new camera out to the park to get some fresh air and some peace of mind. 

 One of the many things I love about London is their parks, the green sanctuaries to walk around in.

Blue skies on a relatively mild December day.
