L'avènement de Noël: № 24









Christmas Eve*

I'm a little terribly excited as I type this post, featuring the second to last post within the L'avènement de Noël series. Oh, I so look forward to Christmas Eve. It was beautiful—a bustling, yet warm evening, new decorations with twinkling lights, curtained archways with bows and wreaths, enjoying the smell of a delicious, fresh cake and Christmas music. On went my favorite sequined dress, belted of course, with a pewter blazer and high heels... and then onto church and beautiful music; music that seemed to pour from the stage to the ceiling, and into every single warm seat and little corner, out the double doors and into the streets... the pure sound of joy rang... it rang... and as the night comes to a close, we all snuggle cozily in our beds, with dreams of tomorrow—the excitement and happiness that awaits and most especially, the joy... may your heart also be filled with much joy this evening...

  2. Dearest Sarah,

    What you describe above is exactly what we did... After a deliciously authentic Italian 5-course dinner with our best friends we went to Church where the singing, the organ, the horn and flute made such joyful noises. We left 'filled' in body and spirit home to our warm duvets and slept like angels! Now it is making the phone calls 'home' a cross the ocean...

    Merry Christmas to you and compliments for your meaningful blogs!
