Bonne fin d'année!

Et bon réveillon! Or at least that's what I've been hearing today...wishes for a good celebration of Réveillon de Saint Sylvestre - otherwise known as New Year's Eve. 

Sending you all good wishes for a gentle ending of 2011.  I'll be reflecting on all the things for which I'm grateful; all the things I've experienced this year that have brought me to this moment at year's end; all of the people I love and cherish (including my sweet bodhi!...yes, it's come to me actually mentioning my dog linked in with such sentiments); all of the challenges overcome along with the abundance and beauty that has unfolded throughout this year...even amidst trials and losses. 

A new year always holds so much hope and promise of things yet to come.  I love this last evening of each year to reflect - in both directions.

Tomorrow's post will be published later than usual as I'm leaving early in the morning by train to visit with some of those aforementioned cherished friends.  Look for a celebratory post tomorrow evening to ring in the brand new baby year.  (Card selection for January will go up Monday.)

My very best wishes to you all for this final day of 2011.

Have a wonderful time Leslie.

I am so glad you have close friends to visit and spend time with.

Thank you so very much for your wonderful images and inspiring posts. I so enjoy reading them and can't wait to see what the New Year brings for each and every one of us.

As the New Year comes in, it brings challenges, commitments, ups and downs. It is in how we view these opportunities because that is what they are... blessings in disguise challenging us to be true to ourselves and what we believe in.

Happy New Year sweet friend!
