While I've been cooped up inside, waiting out the howling winds of Hurricane Sandy, I can't help but let my mind wander back to sunnier days. When I was in France this past June, my sister and I kept coming across this sweet little shop with an irresistibly colorful window display. The shop sold the prettiest strings of lights -- you could choose from dozens of colors to create your own arrangement. It reminded me of those make-your-own jewelry I loved when I was young. Such a fun way to decorate, don't you think?
Stay safe out there East Coast!
