Holiday Greetings of Peace


Give us Peace, Give us Peace, Give us Peace.


Share yourself with those you love,
greet the new year with an open heart,
and cultivate an open mind.

I promise to do the same.

Thank you for your readership,
your support, and your encouragement.
May we all find prosperity, peace,
and positivity in 2010 and beyond.

Be well, and be kind,

[Yeah, that's me...but where did those crazy photos come from? Like last year, I had the opportunity to take some festive holiday portraits at work, and made a couple of the best ones into a festive and remarkably cheesy holiday card.  Ah yes, working at a photo studio has its perks from time to time.]

Love the card! Very Mary Richards, I think (maybe "Merry" Richards?) ;)

Hope your holiday is everything you wish it to be, Kim! Much happiness in the new year.

Sorry, no comments/questions allowed right now.
Hi reader! My schedule as full-time grad student with two part-time jobs doesn't allow me the time to manage comments. I hope you enjoy what you find and can figure out answers to any questions you may have. xo
