Happy New Year!

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 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!

Happy new year, Robin, and I hope the champagne toasts bring you joy, and a happy start to 2012. And, oh yeah, I agree with you about the change in the White House.

Best wishes for you and your family for a wonderful New Year! And, I fully intended to take out the bottle of champagne in the fridge (leftover from last year!!!) but never got around to it. I think I'll have it for breakfast! take care, D.
