  1. I realize this is very late, but I had computer problems for the month of December, but Merry Christmas and Happpy New Year. I wish I could visit, the lights in the sky are beautiful. Now I’m heading over to the CNN link.

  2. Thanks ever so much for sharing these Christmas traditions with us! Your photo technique intrigues me. The look is very cool and retro, especially in your day shots. I like that. Please keep them coming! And thanks for dropping by my blog!
