Though January is when we pack up our Christmas things
and give Santa a well deserved rest,
I like to continue to savor the twinkly lights
and winter whites of the season.
The sparkle of the trees covered in lights
lend a magical touch to a winter night,
Just as a friend's winter wonderland vignette
does as it drifts across her mantel.
A group of girlfriends recently spent a cozy
evening dining by this sparking scene.
We gathered to celebrate a milestone birthday,
chatting and laughing together in the glow
of this magical winter wonderland.
Candles flickered and glitter sparkled.
Frosted trees covered in tiny lights
twinkled through the night.
Nearby we enjoyed Chinese food
amid a forest of frosted trees.
Each one glistened in the candlelight
with its own majestic elegance.
Mark Roberts' jeweled baubles nestled
at the base in drifts of snow,
Spears encrusted with
Place settings of silver and gold
included a Golden Ticket.
Each guest hopeful that
their's would hold the winning numbers!
Alas, only one winning ticket at the table.
The birthday girl won $10!
Our Chinese takeout was
followed with a fortune cookie . . .
And birthday cake for our
sweet friend, Elta.
It was a beautiful winter evening
shared with cherished friends.
