So much to be thankful about!

I just feel so lucky having co -bloggers around the world who really turned my life upside down. Made my life more exciting and I feel more loved than ever before.  Received many Christmas greetings than ever before. Lately Jessica from " Sketches of words made a portrait of me. And this time, I fell in love with my face:) Jessica is very talented. And she has a promising future. Thank you so much Jessica. This is a treasure for me.
Phioxee from " Wanderer" sent me a Happy New Year greeting. Oh my! I am really blessed meeeting these lovable young people in blogsphere.

I want to thank also Ric from " Life N Canvas" for these special New Year's greeting to us. 

He wrote "Let me also thank the people behind these wonderful blogs! Thank you for always dropping by! I’ll be looking forward to hearing reading more from you.

According to him: More inspiring blogs

Thanks Ric and you inspires us too. We are very lucky knowing you.

I want also to thank Jondmur for the Happy New year greetings he made for me/us. To be seen at the right side of my blog:)

Thanks to Ole Johnny Male for letting me published his pictures in my blog.  Pictures under. They are really worth sharing.
