See You Next Year~!

Just a little note to wish you a lovely evening, however you plan to spend it, and please be safe and enjoy! I’m preparing for guests this evening… as the snow falls and the sky starts to darken at only 4pm… it’s amazingly romantic and calm although I know that very soon the sound of fireworks and celebration will fill the streets…

almost a new year!

“A new year is beginning to peak through, softly beautiful and different like new falling snow, each day unique and shaped just for you. Your life adding something as each day does grow. My wish for your new year is beauty and softness with surprises thrown in for delight. Love for each day bringing happiness to you, making your life a scene of sparkle and shining sunlight.” – Unknown.

We burn a lot of candles in my home during this time of year since it gets dark very early, usually around 3:30. But I don’t mind, it forces me to enjoy the moment a bit more. Candles make things cozy with such little effort.

Thank you for a lovely year and I’ll be seeing you on Monday morning my friends, much love to you!

xo,

Holly

    Holly,

    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all of life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours..

    Wishing you peace and joy in 2010, I hope you have a wonderful New Year and enjoy tonight :)

    All things nice…

    Such a lovely photo, dear Holly! Is it a window in your apartment? I am now sitting near my snowy window in another part of Hannover (lived about seven years at Moltkeplatz before) remembering the new year’s eve at Moltkeplatz in the List. Maybe you and your friends like to take a little walk over there at midnight. It’s the best meeting point in the neigbourhood if you like to listen to a drum and percussion session then.
    Happy new year.
