Wishing you a very happy Christmas

by Sharon Santoni
[blank]Ghetto, Gibson and all of my family here in Normandy, join me in wishing you a Happy Christmas and the very best for the new year ahead.  A rather kitsch picture we know, but we thought you may not mind a little fantasy in this festive season!
I am taking a few days off from the blog, a time to enjoy family near and far, and remember the most important things in life. [blank]

[blank]Thank you for your presence this year, I am so fortunate to have readers like you.   You encourage and inspire me.  You take my breath away with your beautiful blogs and clever comments.  You make me laugh out loud, and sometimes you even make me cry …. blogging is indeed  a wonderful adventure.A special hello to those who visited me here in Normandy this year, and to those who are booked to visit in the months to come – the blog has brought many wonderful people to my door, I hope that will continue for a while to come.[blank]

[blank]2012 has been fun here at MFCH, and Gibson and Ghetto tell me they intend to do everything possible to make next year even better.[blank]

A very Joyeux Noël to you all![blank]

Hi Sharon,
a Very Merry Christmas to you and your family and I hope you have a wonderful 2013. Your photos of the dogs look great. My dog is also suffering the terrible indignity of posing for chrissie photos wearing his Gingerbread man tie 😀 ….. and red toe nails…. They really do love it! Just getting them to pose for the photo is the fun bit. I'm sure he'd roll his eyes at me if he could.
Best Wishes for the season, Michelle xx

Merry Christmas to your and yours! Thank you for showing and sharing the beauty of Normandy, Paris and the beautiful market finds! I love this post! I do not know how you got your pups to sit so patiently but I love it!

Have a fabulous holiday, Elizabeth

You have been a blessing to me!!! Your beautiful posts have given me a glimpse into French life that I otherwise would not have known. My great-grandmother was from Paris and I was named after her. I was fortunate to be able to visit Paris in 2000 but because of health issues have not been able to return. Blessings to you and your family!

Happy Christmas to you. Thanks for such an inspiring blog. I just started blogging myself. I don't know where you find the time to do it everyday. I do try to get it in once a month or so. Love for you to check me out and give any helpful suggestions: Juniper Rose rose-ofanother.blogspot.com/
I of course have about six followers , but it doesn't bother me too much, because that just means less pressure for creative posts.
I too, love the dogs and their Christmas photos. Enjoy your holiday and family time. And thanks for being an inspiration. Jennifer ( future stylish girlfriend in America ) 🙂

Lisa B near Boston December 24, 2012 - 5:50 pm

Thank you for your beautiful blog! The Christmas pictures of Chateau de Moissac provided the perfect antidote to a spot of rather unpleasant (but necessary!) mall shopping. It got me through too many versions of "Last Christmas I Gave you My Heart" that gets piped through the stores. Merry Christmas.
