Raising a Glass (or a plastic tea cup)

Well, I managed to let the very last Monday of 2008 pass me by without posting My Best Shot. Heavy Sigh.

My husband and I took a few days off without kids or computers (very late notice) and Monday came and went while I was gone. It wasn't until the long drive home that it dawned on me. I totally missed it. I apologize! But, alas, I will not let the end of this year pass without taking notice. And so, I am considering this a kind My Best Shot as we give a farewell toast the year that is almost behind us and a welcome toast to 2009.

It's a big deal to wrap up the year. And it feels particularly good to have a fresh start come Thursday. I want to honor both the coming and the going. Please feel free to join me.

If you've got a shot you'd like to share (something you had ready for Monday or something new) please leave your links.

Farewell to all that 2008 was and Cheers to all that 2009 will be.

I was wondering where you were! Hope you had a lovely, unplugged time with the family. I've got to get around to doing that one of these days!

Here is what I posted on Monday.

Happy New Year!

Sweet lovely shots. A nice way to toast in the new year with a cuppa tea! : )

Happy New Year Tracey and family!

Looking forward to more fun times and hopefully some blogger get togethers! Even though I'm down in SD, I'd love to come up to visit.
Perhaps we can do some photo trekking together? : )

Good for you! I figured as much when I checked in Mon AM and in the PM. We all need some time to just be...

With my daughter being 12 now...I miss those tea sets. Remembering how we used to play with her Disney Princess one everyday.

Cheers from our family!
Happy New Year! :)
