  1. First you had me at "dim sum" then you showed us the Saks windows! Oy, how I miss New York, especially during the holidays. This was a GREAT tour and a wonderful reminder of The Big Apple!

    Thanks for sharing your city.

  2. how awesome!!! I love N.Y but haven't been in a very long time!

  3. Those are some beautiful children. Can you buy me that first red dress? I love the Saks windows. Who am I kidding? I love all of it! If money were not object I'd get on a plane and go right now. But my finances object. Oh well, thanks for taking me "virtually".

    I hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday season!

  4. Oh my, I just loved your pictures! I have always wanted to try Dim Sum and I wish my butt could fit into that first red dresses..lol Thank you for shareing these photos! Happy Holidays

  5. Oh. I've never been to NYC during the holidays but I do remember being in downtown Chattanooga (yeah- big city for me) when I was a child and how magical it was at Christmas. Thank-you for sharing. And Michelle- your children- oh my. Beauty upon beauty.

  6. I've never had dim sum and don't really even know what it is, but I'd sure be willing to try it one of these days! Looks yum!

    Your children have the most beautiful completions. Sweet honey and caramel are the best comparisons that I can think of that describes their beautiful glow.

  7. I sure do miss NYC at Christmas time. I lived there, but only for a year.

    Happy holidays!

  8. I had Dim Sum in China and the it was so good, it still brings tears to my eyes. I had it in 1997.

    Your kids are gorgeous.

  9. Dim sum...I am so jealous. Also jealous of NYC at Christmastime; I've been there twice during holiday time and it's so festive.

    Those are incredibly beautiful children!

  10. You and your sisters have such beautiful, lovely, gorgeous children. You must get stared at when you go out.

  11. I am with Mia.LOVE the red Valentino!

    And the kids are just so beautiful.......want to stick Mia on the top of my tree!


so... wadaya think?

Your fairy is called Columbine Icedancer
She is a bone chilling bringer of justice for the vulnerable.
She lives in mushroom fields and quiet meadows.
She is only seen when the bees swarm and the crickets chirrup.
She wears lilac and purple like columbine flowers. She has icy blue butterfly wings.
