The reindeer will first fly to the ones who most need them

Merry Christmas to you all from the bottom of my heart, the reindeer are coming!

Just wanted to wish you all Merry Christmas! 🎅🏻🎄

I hope you are going to have a peaceful, relaxing and joyful time.

And if it’s not like that … well don’t worry too much about it! You’ll have a better one next year! 😊

A special thought goes to whoever is having a hard time, either human or animal.

Whoever is alone, physically or mentally ill, or in need.

The reindeer will fly to you first! 🦌🛷🦌

I know it can be hard for you to be online these days, with the social media showing super happy people and their celebrations! Don’t pay too much attention to it! There is people who just like to show their life as it was always fantastic! But everyone’s life has its ups and big downs, there is not such a thing as a perfect one! Nor a perfect Christmas!

And there is also a lot of good people out there who cares about you, who is dedicated and willing to help, lots of organizations you can reach for help. You are not alone 💖

Finally, remember nature!

Enjoy her beauty and trust her healing powers. She is the best friend you have in every moment of your life, when you are happy and when you are feeling down.

She is always there for you, and it’s totally free. 🌲🦌🐿🦉🌿

I am going to spend the next days with my family, just relaxing, perhaps with a new book, and a good story! And tomorrow morning, when everyone is still sleeping, I’ll step into my beloved forests, sit on a snowy rock, and spend some Christmas times with the trees and the creatures of the woods.

I’ll be back soon! Till then, take good care of you …

Love, Simona 🤍🌲🤍

Simona D'Auria

Hi! My name is Simona and I am a photographer and an illustrator in love with the natural world.

I live in Sweden in a small village on the forest hills, where I moved a few years ago leaving behind the busy city of London to pursue my artistic activity. ​This has been a long time dream that I eventually managed to fulfil. I have never regretted it!​​

Nature is my only place to be, hiking my way to explore it and photography is one of the means I use to record the fantastic stories I am so lucky to witness during my excursions. Many of these stories also turn into graphics or illustrations.
