. . .
last night, it was cozy by candlelight, but {a snow-covered eiffel tower aside}, there are still many days left of winter, and already, thoughts are drifting to sand between toes, sunlit daydreams and saltwater kisses . . .

{p.s.} more ways to weather winter: bright bouquets & floral jumpers

Wishing you a Happy Thursday!
