This time of year can be both stressful and sweet. Amidst all the holiday brouhaha, it's important to remember that this is really a time about being grateful and giving back, whether it be time spent with family or helping out a good cause.
I attended a lovely cocktail last night organized by my friend Christine who raised funds for a local charity. Although she has her hands full with a demanding job and two kids, she still takes the time to help others in need. And that is the spirit of Christmas.
Speaking of giving back, a special thanks goes to Jennifer Daiker for mentioning me on her great blog!
Here are a few pictures taken during the soirée at the Harricana store in Montreal. Harricana by Mariouche is a local designer who works with recycled fur, and her pieces are truly stunning. We were blessed with a private concert by Florence K. a talented signer.
