Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas my beautiful friends!  As I write this snow flurries are softly falling outside (wow! thanks mother nature :), a warm fire is burning & I'm surrounded by my family, friends & two feline sons...this is the best gift I could ever hope for & I'm enormously grateful.  It's so easy to forget how fortunate we are....my little brother was taking a cab to the bus in NYC to head to my mom's & his driver, from central Africa, was telling him that people in the U.S. have no idea how lucky they are to even just live here.  In his village they constantly feared for their lives & had to walk four miles each way just to get water to drink.  He was in disbelief that in NYC they use hundreds of gallons of water to wash buildings.  This holiday season & every day of the year let's always remember to be grateful for our many blessings & never, ever forget to BELIEVE... 
this West Village townhouse fills my heart with joy :)

  1. Have a wonderful time with your family and your precious feline family members. Most cab drivers that come from Africa are from West or Central Africa. There are many many challenges there. Clean water is so precious as so much disease is caused from a lack of it. No snow here in St. Barths but rain seems to be a pesky nuisance. Salut! If you ever get a chance to do New Years in St. Barths, it is truly fabulous!!!

    1. New Years in St. Barths sounds like a dream! I hope that pesky rain is staying away & you're having a great stay. Please send pictures, I'd love to see!
