Little Treasures


What are your plans for 2012?

Any special dreams you've had tucked away in your back pocket?

Or up on the shelf waiting for a better time? 


I like to think of all those secret hopes and dreams as
 little treasures waiting to be discovered.

This Fall has been quite a time for my French Honey and I.
Mostly all good, but a few unexpected health scares that had us on our knees.
Once again, I am reminded how precious is the time we spend with those we love.


I don't usually make new years resolutions, but this year I've decided to just go for it!


I'm anxious to see what you have planned!



Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!

I had to have an emergency appendectomy right before Christmas and thank heavens they removed it before it ruptured.

I hope your 2012 will be full of Love and good health dear Mimi.

Love,

My dear friend Mimi,
I never make New Years resolutions.......I always wonder why people think that they will work more than any other time of year !!!!
I just want to thank you so much for all of your support throughout 2011 and, from the bottom of my heart I wish you and your family a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year filled with many magical moments, wishes fulfilled and lots of fun.
Sent with love from my family to yours. XXXX

Yes indeed, Mimi, health is the one big surprise that can come up so quickly. I'm glad you both are fine!
I don't make resolutions at new year's.... life can go by so fast that I try to take each day as it comes! There are times when I feel SO fortunate to just be me. And, you know, I think to be a woman in our generation is one of the greatest gifts we have all received!
Anyway, glad you're ok, and hoping we will meet up this year!

Dearest Mimi,

Oh, we both certainly know about those health scares and in a way it is good that it makes us realize how precious life and family time is. That is about the most important thing in life, the rest should be secondary.
Wishing you both good health and all the best for 2012. For both of us never resolutions. When one sticks to the daily routine and discipline, what else is needed? We hope for a recovering economy soon!

Love to you,

Mariette

Sorry I put the wrong URL in there. Just discovered a new blog that's why it's in there. It is: 'The French Table' But here comes mine.

Wishing you all the happiness and health for a lovely 2012. Sometimes a scare is a good 'wake up' call... we all get so busy and forget what life is really all about.

Happy New Year Mimi!
I'm so glad to hear you are both alright.
My plans for this year are to spend time with my loved ones and paint more. This last year has been full of changes and I didn't have a lot of time to devote to my art. I am now able to spend full time painting and am excited for new opportunities! Thanks again for all of your help, you are so appreciated and I hope the best for you in this new year!
Take care,
Jenniferxx

Bonjour Mimi!

Dearest, I have returned back at school and I am so late! How is everything? We have been away from writing for Belle. School really is time consuming and really ALL-CONSUMING!!

Be well dearest, Anita

Hello there Mimi!

I just wanted to come by to say hello. I hope all is well; I have not seen you in so long and I always worry that I have said something wrong!!!! Do know that I think of you. We have been ridiculously busy that contributing to La Belle Inspiration has slipped our schedules. That is the only reason why we have not submitted anything.

All my best to you! Anita
