{May 2014 be a Happy and above all a Healthy Year for YOU!}

Hoping you all enjoyed a very special New Year's Eve with your loved ones and that this year will fulfill many a dream. Be it a marriage, the birth of a child/grandchild, a graduation, an anniversary, a special long dreamed about trip, a long awaited visit with relatives or friends after several years... On and on the list goes. Each of us has different dreams, wishes and hopes. One of the ingredients for being Happy is to be Satisfied with what we ALREADY HAVE and for COUNTING OUR MANY BLESSINGS.
Wishing all of you a Happy and above all a Healthy 2014!
This photo is from November 21, 2013 taken during the banquet of the Dublin Rotary Club's 75th anniversary.
Husband Pieter is wearing his Burberry Tuxedo in year 'round weight wool with silk cummerbund and bow tie.
Got him this Tuxedo from Bloomingdales in September of 1986, for use at the many Conferences for their formal banquets. My Pieter never changed in size so this will serve him for life!
I am wearing my Escada silk brocade skirt with wool/cashmere/silk and sequin embroidered top with Escada pumps with +Wolford panty hose. Of course all Outlet items for living frugal.
Both of us are happy and grateful for having recovered from major surgery.
Looking forward to a calmer and healthier 2014!

      There are not that many basic things we all need for life; if we only would focus more on that, the world would change for the better. Health is certainly the most precious thing for each one of us and may we be granted by our Creator many more good years and I wish the same for you and your loved ones.
      Thanks for your kind words.
      Hugs,

      Thank you, my husband does clean up very well and if he wears his tuxedo it's another person compared to the back breaking and sweaty jobs he also performs. But those are the highlights of life and it is worth it all. Rotary is such an important part in helping the world get better with their many outreach programs.
      Hugs to you and once more a Happy New Year to both of you!

  26. Liebe Mariette, sei bedankt für deine wundervollen Wünsche! Ja, du hast recht - zufrieden sein und ein Bewußtsein dafür zu entwickeln, was man alles hat (geliebte Menschen, gelebte Glücksmomente, ein Zuhause, etc.) sind die Grundzutaten für Glück. Du und Pieter, ihr scheint auch ein glückliches Paar zu sein, jedenfalls strahlt ihr das aus, und darüber freue ich mich sehr und wünsche euch noch viele weitere glückliche (und gesunde!!!) Jahre! Ach, und was ich dir heute auch noch schreiben "muss": diese Farbe steht die AUSGEZEICHNET!!!

      Danke für deine liebe Zeilen hier. Es sind Glücksmomente die uns als Kissen für den alten Tag dienen als schöne Erinnerungen. Wenn man sich viel auf der Welt herumgeschaut hat dann lernt man erst wie gut wir es alle haben!!!
      Das allerwichtigste für uns alle ist gute Gesundheit und sonst fehlt uns nicht viel in die westliche Welt.
      Die orangener Farbe trage ich gerne, wenn man so im Süden wohnt kann es auch getragen werden. Es hat sogar etwas von Indien, von den Seiden Sarees...
