Happy Holidays, Happy 2013!

Friends, it’s a wrap (and one gigantic embrace) from this little corner of the cyber world.

Thank you, thank you for all for the wonderful support you have given me throughout the year. What a special bunch you are. I treasure each and every one of you.

This lady is finally breathing like a normal cat again. What a crazy busy season this has been for our store; a customer compared us to Cirque De Soleil. We have managed to pull some last minute miracle tricks, but oh how much fun we have had!

I am now going to take a good winter break, recharge my batteries and focus on my family and close friends. I will be back again Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013!

Love To You All,

    Sötos, nu drar du på dig ett par sköna raggsockor, slår upp en jätte stor mugg glögg och njuter av allt du åstadkommit under året!
    Du är fantastisk Monika och jag skickar massor massor massor av ljus och kärlek till dig över etern.

    Ser fram emot äkta varma kramar nästa sommar!

    All kärlek till dig och familjen
