Hello 2012, Good-bye 2011

Beautiful flowers from DH.
DH + DS(N) found them at the grocery store.
Happy New Year.

I had so many wonderful experiences
in 2011.  Difficult to pinpoint one special time.  
 DH + I were able to spend more time
together and even had a vacation!  Two of our children
were able to vacation a few of the days with us - 
which made it extra special.

Bye 2011 ... 
I crossed off the last item on my 'bucket list'.   
DH surprised me with a sunrise
hot air balloon ride (back in October).
Followed by Champagne Toast + Breakfast.

I've wanted to ride ... for many many years ...
2011 was the year.

It was peaceful, serene, 
more awesome than words can describe.

Looking up.   The ballon is named Envy.

The Balloonist's Prayer:
The Winds have welcomed you with softness.
The Sun has blessed you with it's warm hands.
You have flown so high and so well,
that God has joined you in your laughter
and set you gently back again,
into the loving arms of Mother Earth.
