photo hunt: h o p e



Children are our hope
A picture from my archives, which I have already published here...

Happy 2009! This is my first post for the year and it seems just right to begin my fourth year of blogging (where did the time go??) with hope. Hope the new year brings you all much health, happiness, love and peace. I am still on vacation and while I was outdoors much, I was hardly out taking pics this time.  Of course I sighted the best pictures while skiing down a hill wearing all my winter gear, which made taking a snapshot rather difficult...

Our holiday is almost over and  we will be driving home when this scheduled post is published. I will,  therefore, most likely be rather late visiting and commenting  but count me in!

Footnote: today is our 24th wedding anniversary. Cheers!
