Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year’s Day! I’m looking forward to sharing flowers and thoughts with you in 2012. So grateful for each one of you…

And, before I close for today, I have to wish my best friend (who happens to be my husband) a Happy Anniversary….we’ve been married 24 years today! This year we celebrated Christmas Eve on the beach in my favorite place on Earth…stay tuned for more on that later in the week…

    I love yellow but can’t wear the color at all. We can use some cheery yellow to start the New Year around here!
