WELCOME WINTER 2017

Yesterday officially marked the first day of winter. It was also the first time we turned on our fireplace. Now that is definitely a telling sign that the California winter has arrived because we don’t have true seasons here and our Fall really just felt like an extension of Summer. But when the mercury dips below the low 70’s you’ll start seeing people wandering around with boots, parkas, and scarves (myself included). Winter in California is like no other place and now that it is here I sure hope it can stay a while. I want to get use out of the new coat I bought this year, get use out of the new cashmere sweaters I bought myself while I should have been shopping for others, enjoy the new wool scarves I brought back as souvenirs from Italy a few months ago, and take advantage of sitting in front of the warm fireplace while sipping a hot beverage. Welcome, winter…

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness. ― John Steinbeck

Nothing beats cozy and stylish this winter season.
