01 The Gathering

Into the
 light

Longing for the cosy warmth of laughing friends on a dark and shimmering winter evening. Gently caressed by green stems and a rich floral scent, meandering amidst burning candle lights, burgundy wine, juicy lobster and creamy red velvet cakes. A perfect get together that brings the darkness into the light. It’s all there, dearest_____.
