  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. My kids are multicultural and have traveled and worked abroad. I’ve no Christmas pictures here in Saudi Arabia. I haven’t even seen a pine tree. They put a Christmas (tiny) bush on my desk the other day. Ha! Best wishes to you and happy holidays.

  2. I thought it would be fun today to visit each person that has followed me and wish you a Happy New Year. As I watch it snow out my window, I felt very united with the rest of the world through your photos. :D

  3. Thank you for the trip around the world, giving a glimpse of winter and Christmas in places I’ll probably never see in person. I also greatly appreciate you becoming a follower of my blog. I’m honored you find the posts meaningful!
