More Awards!

2 Jan

Happy New Year!  Wishing everyone and their loved ones a wonderful year ahead.

SalsaGlam was a success!  It was really great to catch up with all of my Salsa friends from Montreal, Vancouver, New York and Paris.  We danced up a storm 🙂  I’ll be posting pictures next week.

2012 ended on a sweet note!

On December 22nd Kim at Tranquil Dreams presented me with The Versatile Blogger Award.  Visit her blog for beautiful photography, creative writing and yummy baking recipes.
