"Celebrate good times, come on!"

Only seems fitting to leave the theme celebration for the last day of the year. Many of us will celebrate the beginning of 2010 by sharing a toast with friends and family. Others of us will celebrate finishing the 365 photos in 2009 challenge! This was indeed a challenge...one I'm proud to have completed. I've made some great cyber friends along the way and learned a lot about my camera. Time to begin next year's journey. Thanks to EVERYONE who stopped by for a peek or left a comment. See you in 2010!

  3. Congratulations Val!! You captured a beautiful image to end the year. I've enjoyed all of your shots and appreciate the time you took to share your comments so freely.

    Ready for another round? I think it was a fellow Chicagoan by the last name of Banks who famously said "Let's play two."

  4. WE DID IT! Thanks so much Val for the comments and the cheerleading that you have done. It kept me going. I have made frieds that I will never forget . . . even if we did miss each other in the Garden of the Gods. You did a terrific job. See you next year!
