Wishing You The Best in The New Year by TeaPhotography Wishing You The Best in The New Year by TeaPhotography

Dear Friends/Watchers here on dA, and Friends and Family who may stumble upon this who don't have dA Accounts,

Whatever was in your past year, may you take whatever you need from it that was good and learn from the rest, and may this next NEW YEAR contain ALL THE BEST! :rose:

This is my genuine wish for you, knowing how much many of us have struggled and do struggle, and how from the bottom of my heart :heart: I am wishing for improvements across the board, for us all! :aww:

Thank you time and again for your amazing support, and kindness; your friendships mean more to me, than my heart-felt words can ever convey... :heart:

With Peace and Love Always,

This is photographed in Azalea Park, Brookings, Oregon, USA.
It is one awesome park year-round, for so many reasons, such as it's year-round beauty, and various events...
but who knew the Annual Lights Festival is such a fabulous event? Now, WE do! :boogie:
It's a donation to get in, but it's an event sponsored by all the local businesses, and they, with the help of many volunteers put it together every year!
Through out all of the amazing Azaleas and Rhododendrons and other trees and bushes, lights are strung completely throughout the park, along with animal shapes completely everywhere, including sea animals, too! :aww:
There is even a whole ice skating rink made of lights only... I could go on and on, because it's just a stunning event- so much so, I could upload way too many photos from the event alone! ;)

They even have hot chocolate and cider and cookies at the concession stand, and Santa walks around..

More of Azalea Park:


Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

Chorus.-For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

from film "Waterloo Bridge" - what a pretty version. :)


[ :note: NOTE: Thank you, in advance, for any :+fav:'s I may receive for this image. :thanks: :aww: :rose: I am honoured and grateful that anyone would think well enough to :+fav: it. :nod: So thank you from the bottom of my heart :heart: . I understand if you don't have time to comment, but thank you for any kind comments, too. :aww:
It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.
