Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

...So be good for goodness sake! I still can't believe that 2013 is just five days away. Is it just me, or is December flying by?
Right now I'm looking forward to: spending time with friends and family, walking in a Winter Wonderland and baking shortbread cookies.
I hope the New Year brings with it lots of promise, peace, joy and happiness to everyone!

What are your plans for New Year's Eve? Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy New Year! xx

Deseo que el 2013 sea un año lleno de paz y prosperidad y que la economía vaya mejor ya que los cortes son enormes en muchos países.
Feliz Año Nuevo.
Un abrazo

Most years, including this one, we have a neighbourhood potluck party at one of the neighbour's homes. It removes the worry about having to drive anywhere afterward, as everyone lives within a one minute stroll from one another.

I hope your own evening will be lovely and that the upcoming New Year brings you at least as much joy and happiness as you give to us with your beautiful photos, dear Betty.

Hugs to you.

It's not just December that's flying by, time is flying at a high rate of speed! I'm feeling the effects of the G-force!

We will open the book, its pages are blank, write words about ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.
freedom we give up our dreams and we dress in radiant reality.

Hallo....It's been long since we talked. When I dont leaf through your blog,you are the only one I terribly miss. Whenever I stalk your blog, there is always the tag ' comments off'. This time I decided to go through your old post and pass on this message.

HAPPY NEW YEAR
