Holiday Sabbatical

Belle and Santa
This will be my last blog for the year. The family will arrive this week and we will be celebrating Christmas and our fortieth anniversary.  Yup, our fortieth. I'm trying to figure out how I can have been married forty years when I'm only twenty-nine.  Heh heh. Any hoo, I'm off to Santa's workshop to wrap presents.  I wish for  you:  good friends, time with family and loved ones, health and happiness and all things wonderful in the new year.
In lieu of a card, I'm giving away a read (beginning Dec 22).  If interested help yourself to a copy.  I'll miss ya and looking forward to hearing all about your holidays in the New Year.
