A very happy New Year ahead...

I know mine will be....and I hope yours will be as well.
I've had an amazing 2012 with my family, my art, traveling....I've been blessed and am so very thankful.
Next year I hope to make more great strides with my art. Been setting new goals already. As for the family...well...I know that later in the year there will be a wonderful daughter Sarah has recently gotten this is a big event I'm looking forward to.
I of course always hope that there will be more travel in my future....I soooo love to travel.
Make goals...think positive...and move in the right direction.
Anything is possible...really!!!
Have a happy 2013!

Paris....once again!!

Yes...back from another amazing trip to Paris. This explains why I have been absent from my blog for some time now. My wonderful husband who won this trip last year...managed to win yet again this year!!! A company paid trip...yes...the best kind.
After such a great time the first time around we would never have expected to be able to do this again. How wonderful to be able to go and do it the second time at an easier pace having already managed to get in the great tourist "must sees" the first time.
This time we got to go to the Rodin Museum which wasn't open last year. Also managed the Dali Museum as well....a must see stop itself.
One highlight of this trip was that the awards dinner held on the third night was booked as a dinner cruise on the Seine on the "Yacht de Paris". event that I won't soon forget.
We were also treated to a side trip for two nights out in Bordeaux. This part of the trip included a tour and wine tasting which ended with an elegant lunch served to our group at the Chateau De Ferrand in Saint-Emilion. We then received a guided tour of the town of Saint-Emilion itself. Remarkable!!
I'm a very lucky gal indeed. I feel truely blessed.
