MX's Giveaway for the night. Lovely Bagabon Bag Charms. 😀
One of my resolutions last year was to step out of my comfort zone, allow things to flow naturally without trying to be the control freak that I am and I am glad I did. Meeting these wonderful new friends and getting to know them is truly a great blessing.
2011 was a year of trials and enormous blessings. The Lord is truly amazing. Ending the year with family, friends, good health and superb food…… gives me a heart that is overflowing with joy and contentment.
Claiming that 2012 will be even more amazing for us all! 😀
