Winter Wonderland in Chamonix

My dear friend Juliette has been inviting us to her family’s holiday house in the Alps for as long as I can remember. And somehow we’ve never managed to organise it. But unemployment is bliss in that it gives me all the free time in the world to do some travelling and spend time with friends (granted the flights are cheap) so I don’t have to think about the fact I’m unemployed.

A couple of weeks ago, Megan and I finally stepped into Juliette’s Winter Wonderland. We spent a weekend wrapped up in blankets by the fire, playing boardgames and drinking Nutella hot chocolates while the sky would not stop pouring snowflakes.

Crisp and airy waffles for breakfast, red wine spiked stews for dinner and some fondue savoyarde along the way, I must say I was in heaven and wished for the weekend to go on. But as ever, I have the photos that take me back to the cosiness of that living room, and of course the epic igloo we built.
