This is my least favorite time of year. The ramp-up to the holidays is over. The trees are coming down. And most disappointingly for me (and my two year old like-minded elves), the lights are going dark.
Today, I'm sitting in front of a roaring fire, avoiding taking the decorations off this year's christmas tree, which - like last year's - will live on planted in the girls' faerie garden out back. I'm trying to squeeze the very last bit of tinsel, glitter and glow out of a fabulous Christmas, with help from these photos from my December trip to Basel. If you didnt get there in 2014, make sure to mark your calendar for this year. After all, no one does Christmas better and brighter than Basel!
