Wishing You All A Happy New Year!
Saying goodbye to the past year is probably one of the easiest things I have done in a long time, and I cannot say I’m sad to see it gone. The past few years of my life (I should say our life really) haven’t been the easiest and if there was a prize being given out for the “Worst Year Of Them All”, 2011 was pretty close to winning it hands down.
But then life is like that as we all know, ups and downs and you win some, you lose some. Yet, when I sit down and really think some things through, I have to say there has been a lot of good in it all.
Some of the lowest points in these past few years have brought about some of the best things in my life. I started writing this food blog and that opened up a whole new world I had never imagined existed out there. I discovered a passion, which I did not know I was capable of, for photography. It has really confirmed what I have always believed, that nothing is more important than the people in one’s life and that it is never too early or late to start appreciating/ remembering them for what they are to us. And I found and made some of the best friends I have today.
“Thank You” are two small words we use so often and many times without much thought, but they are the only two words I know in English that come close to expressing my appreciation to all of you whom I know (and know me), through this blog and otherwise.
So I’m starting my New Year by saying “Thank You” to all of you, who have been with me throughout the past year and kept me in your thoughts, and been there for me. I deeply appreciate the time and effort that many of you took to write in saying how much you enjoy my blog, recipes and photography.
A big “Thank You” also to all of you who have kept me motivated enough to continue writing this blog, by coming here to read my sometimes irregular posts, and leaving your thoughtful comments despite the fact that I haven’t been very visible at your blogs, many of which are on my “to read” list.
I shall not bore you any further and embarass myself by going on in the manner of an acceptance speech at the Oscars, so I’ll leave you all with these wishes that I borrowed from Joanna Fuchs and hope that 2012 brings all that you hope for and more.
I wish you all.
Happiness deep down within.
Serenity with each sunrise.
Success in each facet of your life.
Family beside you.
Close and caring friends.
Health, inside you.
Love that never ends.
Special memories of all the yesterdays.
A bright today with much to be thankful for.
A path that leads to beautiful tomorrows.
Dreams that do their best to come true.
Appreciation of all the wonderful things about you.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
