Hello to my fellow bloggers! I’m sorry for my long absence. I’ve missed all of you and missed reading your blogs too.
I was unfortunate enough to get the flu twice. But then I was really fortunate to fly to NYC with some girlfriends last week!
I’m sharing some of the New York City holiday spirit with you today. And I’m wishing all of you a very, very wonderful holiday with those you love. Enjoy!

Approaching Manhattan on the Staten Island Ferry.
Looking down a row of angels toward the Rockefeller Plaza Christmas tree.
Huge red ornaments piled on a fountain in front of a business in New York.
“Believe” sparkles on the side of Macy’s Department Store.
Sending love and Blessings to you and yours this holiday season….

Carlos! Thank you! Glad you got to see the pix and so glad we were both on this adventure together! 😉
Glad to hear you’re feeling better. Forget about catching up on Blogs, it is not important, your friends will be your friends whatever, whether you read and reply or not, and if they don’t like it they are not your true friends.
Hope you have a great Christmas and a healthy and prosperous NY.

Ahhhhhhh…. Manhattan ! I’m in love with this extraordinary city ! The photo of the red ornaments is so beautiful and it looks great on your header ! When I look at your photos I feel a sense of excitement and wonder. This city is so fantastic and beautiful ! There’s something about it that makes me want to return over and over again. There is beauty everywhere and there’s a sense of happiness and excitement enveloping the city which I’m totally addicted to ! I just can’t wait to return, and next time it will be during the Holidays !
