One of my very favorite things to do is log onto MSN.com each Friday & look at "The Week In Pictures" from around the world. The last Friday of December, they do a recap of the year & call it... you guessed it: "The Year In Pictures". Rather than write a long blog detailing what I did this year, I thought I would make my own "Year In Pictures". So.... Enjoy, and hope you have a fabulous 2010!
