It really does feel great in your hand, it has a heft to it but is very comfy. I really do love it.

Love the colors, the way the black is almost water color like (if that makes sense).

May you all have a Merry Christmas, Happy and Wonderful Holiday, and now that we have passed the solstice, a sense of moving out of darkness and toward the light.
May you be well.
