Making Spirits Bright...

And here it is again - Christmas Day, the day when families get together to share their joy and happiness, the day when children (and adults) cannot wait to wake up in the morning and start unwrapping those beautiful boxes under the Christmas tree, the day when everyone becomes just a little bit kinder and little bit closer to each other, and when it is just natural to keep thanking people around us for simply being in our lives...
I wish everyone a very very merry Christmas! May you and your families enjoy each other's company and take this time to truly appreciate having each other! May all your dreams and wishes come true and may your lives be full of smiles and laughter!
Merry Christmas Everyone!

Second Annual Xmas Party

Yesterday's second annual party at our friends' house was an official opener for this year's holiday season. As always, the gathering was a blast, with lots of laughs, games, dancing, singing, and just plain fooling around and being silly. Their house looked absolutely amazing, which added to the overall mood of the celebration. 
For my outfit, I chose this blue leopard print dress, which I dressed up with a bright jacket and shoes in contrasting colors.

{We were visited by Ded Moroz, Russian Santa,  and Snegurochka, his granddaughter, who brought me a gift!}

{I'm wearing my gift here - a new pair of boots. Santa was very generous}
