Welcome 2012!

Welcome 2012!

I’m off to do a bit of an early celebration and then will be back later to watch the serious party people do their thing. 😉

To everyone who has enhanced my life so much this year through G+, and there are many of you, I thank you! I’m very excited for what 2012 will bring!

Happy New Year!!

Baby you’re a firework!

Here’s a shot from Orlando (technically Kissimmee) – at the Gaylord Palms hotel. Quite a nice place. Would love to stay there some time and get some great photos of the huge atrium.

Ok, yes, I just wanted to post a cute dog picture and I am not feeling clever with words. I’m out all day tomorrow again just like I was most of today so I thought it would be nice to leave something cute up. Quick (hopefully) car fix and then some fun (hopefully) in Orlando and then it’s almost 2012 – crazy!

It’s that time of year. 🙂 This week is “catch-up week” for me. January looks to be crazy busy which is great, but I don’t want to start out a new year already behind on anything!

for Macro Monday curated by Kerry Murphy, Jennifer Eden, & Kelli Seeger Kim – all of whom are enjoying some much needed R&R this week. Thanks for all the hard work you do curating this fabulous theme ladies!! ♥

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is different in Florida and fun in its own way.

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with those they love!

Finished shopping, wrapping and (most) cleaning. Yay! I’m off tomorrow to enjoy the amazing 80 degree weather and hopefully get some new nature photos. Now, though, it’s time to relax for a bit.

Or maybe I should say “sanity”. Just when I thought all was well, I forgot I had the touch of death with computers and did it all over again! This time I’m armed with two machines, basically mirrored, so that scenario doesn’t bite me again. fingers crossed

I hope everyone is excited for the holidays (done with shopping!) and ready to enjoy them with family and friends! Later this week, I’ll be heading out to do some more nature photos and I can hardly wait! I am SO over dealing with computers right now. Sorry I haven’t been around to see everyone’s beautiful work as much. Working on fixing that straight away! 😀
