LET THE SEASON BEGIN






It starts with a spectacular sunset on Butterfly Beach.





(Yes, it truly looks like this.)




Then into the Biltmore...




...for warm apple cider, sugar cookies, carolers, a tree-lighting ceremony...



...and of course a visit with St. Nicholas.




The best I ever got along with Santa



I told him, "You remind me of my father."

He replied, "You remind me of my grand-father."



A candle in the night



Then, this foggy evening, on to Oliver's...




Venus and Mars are all right tonight.

MY AMAZING (and very stylish) MOTHER



Four Seasons, Beverly Hills


Still teaching me things I'm delighted to learn.

BACK HOME...







...to my favorite cushion.

And my shadow...  




He even helps me fight jet lag...


The Dude's first sunrise

RETURN TO MARYLEBONE








And just in time for their joyous Christmas street fair!






Nine days of learning and wonderment.



YORK BY NIGHT





Harkers.  

Awesome pub.  

With a whole spectrum of my favorite gin...





Seen around town...






My kind of Guy.





They don't have to wait until after Thanksgiving, because they don't have one.








The key is to give thanks every day.



A shop devoted to Teddy Bears




This is what contentment looks like




Singing along to James Taylor and Billy Joel tunes...




...over a nightcap of black velvet...






...in the Punch Bowl pub.

It is impossible not to be enchanted by York.
