Yup, that's the kind of year it's been. It is tradition that we get one bottle of champagne to ring in each New Year. This year, we agreed that it would take a bit more...one to ring in the New Year...and a second to toast the Loved Ones that we lost....four beloveds total. I know 2011 has been full of hardships for many and I pray that 2012 will be full of Hope...and CHANGE (as in no more Obama), but more importantly I wish for you Health, Happiness and Prosperity. I heard a Christmas song the other day and the lyrics said something like..."I don't mind stains on the carpet as long as there's food on the table"...and that is so so true.
May your table always have food on it.
Happy New Year!
