Borrowed from Justine Eclectic Odds N Sods Love this photo!!

Tomorrow will be very busy cooking and cleaning, well today is also but I wanted to take this opportunity, before I go into overdrive, to wish you all a Happy Holiday, Merry Christmas whatever you choose to celebrate or not celebrate. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

I am thankful for all of you, your friendship and understanding and support over what has been a very tough year for me. Thank you so much!

It’s always good to reflect on how much we have to be thankful for, especially during the holidays. I have my job which I love (most of the time), my family, my friends and this blog which started 4 years ago in January (yep my annivarsary is coming up), it is a source of great joy for me and has introduced me to some of the most amazing people, cooks, authors, DIY and crafters that I consider friends.

I have a very special blog post scheduled for my anniversary and am very excited about it. Also, I am co hosting (with 3 other lovely ladies) a very special Fiesta Friday, it’s #100 and I look forward to the party and recipes.

Have a wondeful Holiday one and all!!

      • That is mutual, Suzanne. I am so happy to know you. Having you as a friend is a joy and a privilege. It’s been a rough year for both of us; for many people. I’m not the only one you’ve helped make it through some dark days.
        So, my friend, here’s a Christmas toast to sunny days, peaceful dreams, and all good things. Happy holiday hugs.

My favorite photo was the one of you sitting at your laptop. Now can imagine you there sending out your writing to us all. Hope your Christmas was a warm and wonderful time with friends and family around your table… xo
