The Magic of Winter


" Winter is a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour "
- John Boswell


The season of Winter has arrived...


we shall embrace its beauty,


endure its hardships,


and always think forward to Spring...

Merry Christmas!
