Poised to begin the New Year, I realize that I need to pack the many wonderful moments from 2011 into a sunny place in my memory. I wonder what 2012 has in store?
I wanted to make my New Years greeting a little different from most of my other posts… Following you’ll find an A – Z account of people, places, sights and sounds that made me smile this year. The slideshow at the foot of the piece illustrates it all… I hope your screen is big enough to read the text and view the images simultaneously…
A is for the many angels in my life
B is for bride… my daughter was a beautiful one
