counting stars by candle light

The wind has been whipping through our little valley, rattling the old rental windows with each gust -
The bedroom gets it especially bad with windows facing two corners of the building. *Luckily* my wonderful generous mother gifted us an entire Northern Nights (thats right QVC) bedding set - gorgeous dove grey down comforter that is super warm and cozy - sheets softer than my 1000 thread count ultra expensive sheets - a super warm hotel quality blanket and beautiful cream and navy toile bedspread and pillow covers. Perfect for nestling in for a toasty night while the wind howled and shook the windows -
Lazy blissful holi*daze* spent drinking cardamom coffee with cinnamon and madagascar vanilla beans; lovely cozy cashmere layers; soul warming soup; heady scented candles - bliss for the bitter cold -
