Happy New Year

Here's wishing you a 2012 filled with good things: love, light and beauty--or whatever you think is good, maybe you don't like those things, maybe you want dissonance, piglets and toe shoes. I hope you get them. Maybe you want an arrogant boyfriend, a new haircut, guitar lessons, a trip to Australia.

I don't care what you want, I hope you get it in 2012, as long as it doesn't take advantage of anyone else, hurt anyone else or look down its nose at anyone else (which may preclude the arrogant boyfriend).

Thank you for your visits to Pasadena Daily Photo this year. And happy new year to you! Have fun (if that's what you want).

Wishing you, John and Boz a happy and healthy 2012, Petrea. Thank you for bringing some sun and fun and inspiration to my 2011.
Much as I'd like to wish for a trip to sunny Pasadena this coming year I think I'll settle for a little dissonance (I can do without the arrogant boyfriend).

Dina said...

Thanks for these gorgeous colors of nature and your funny wishes to start the year with a smile.

Book Dragon said...

you took my breath away with your photo

I've very glad I wasn't drinking when I read your post! LOL and right back at you (if that's what you want)

Thank you for a memorable year

BaysideLife said...

What a lovely photo. Starting the year off with an image of beauty--priceless. Making people smile--a true gift. That's about the best new year's wish I've ever read. Covers just about everything!

Petrea Burchard said...

Good morning on this new year's eve day.

See, Dive, I knew there was at least one person out there who actually wanted dissonance. Happy new year.

And do you, Dina, my friend.

Thank you, Book Dragon, that is what I want! HNY to you, too!

Bayside Life, I'm glad you said that. I was hoping to cover everything but as you know, nobody reads those really long blog posts. Thank you and Happy New Year!

Patricia said...

Happy New Year to you,too. Thanks for adding a little piece of happiness in my life every day with your words and pictures here. After a rather rough year, something fabulous just happened to make 2012 so much better. Hope you have a wonderful New Year's Eve, if it's in your jammies at home or whooping it up on the town!

Laurie said...

Gimme my piglets and toe shoes, dang it.

Petrea Burchard said...

That's good news, Patricia! Happy new year!

See, Laurie, I know you.

Desiree said...

Happy next year!

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Happy New Year to you and yours....as we enter the final days of the weird period. Separated by Colorado Blvd to the north and the Arroyo to the east.

Petrea Burchard said...

Likewise, Desiree. You too, PA. We've hunkered down with our supplies and will come out again in a few days.

Kat Ward said...

Warm, cozy, yummy pic to end the year on. Thanks, Petrea for this bog, your photo sharing, your thoughts, your generosity. I hope 2012 proves to be an "up" year for those who have had to struggle these past many, many years.

Here's to chasing our dreams and crossing that finish line (so that we can find another dream to pursue!).

Happy, Happy to you.

Trish said...

Ending the year on a giggle and a beautiful picture! I knew it!

I'll pass on the arrogant boyfriend---had too many of those years ago--am over quota.

I'm just happy to settle for 2012 being a damn far sight better than 2011.

Hope you and John and Boz have a nice quiet few days hiding from the revelers and a wonderful new year!

wv: aersephi---we would venture out into Pasadena, but we're afraid of running into too many drunk aersephi roaming the streets

Steven said...

Happy New Year to those with two legs and those with four. I Will be tuning in to watch the Granddaddy of all Parades. Do I tune in tomorrow or is it on Monday? And what about "Zen Monday?" Will that be pushed to Tuesday? Now I'm totally confused.

Petrea Burchard said...

That's a good hope, Kat. Let the struggles be over. In fact, I'm making it my new year's resolution! Thanks for your good wishes.

Trish, I can never get enough arrogant boyfriends so maybe I'll make that a resolution, too. You have a happy new year.

Tune in Monday, Steven. The Tournament of Roses has a "never on Sunday" policy, so the parade will be on January 2nd this year. I see no reason not to have a Zen Monday as well, do you?

Steve Scauzillo said...

And thank you for all the entertainment, beauty and info from a year's worth of Pasadena Daily Photo. Here's to a bright and full 2012!

Margaret said...

Happy New Year! I have everything I want!

Ms M said...

Wishing you, John, and Boz a wonderful 2012!
May your lives be filled with beauty and joy -- and fun, too! :-)

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, Steve. What a nice thing to say. Happy new year!

Margaret, it looks like your year is already off to a good start! HNY!

Thank you, Ms. M! Happy new year!

Speedway said...

You sort of got me started on this blog journey I began last June. I've *met* people to whom I'd otherwise never have had access, who have helped me expand and brighten my sometimes solitary little world. I am gratefdul to you all and wish you, John and Boz all the best for 2012.

Petrea Burchard said...

Speedway, thanks for your good words. I hope you have a marvelous 2012.

Shell Sherree said...

Happy New Year, dear Petrea. My hopes are more down the love, light and beauty path, but perhaps some piglets and a new haircut would be fun. Thank you for being you.

Katie said...

Awesome photo! All my best wishes for a very happy new year to PB&J and the Pasadena Daily Photo gang. I'm in Minnesota bringing in the new year and tonight it snowed (there was none when I arrived) and I can't wait to go build a snowman in the morning. Here's to a year where simple pleasures abound!

sonia a. mascaro said...

Happy New Year to you and your family. May 2012 be full of happiness, good health and peace!

I enjoyed so much visiting Pasadena Daily Photo this year.

Petrea Burchard said...

Shell, if you want love, light and beauty you should have them, though I'd like to see your illo of the piglets.

Thank you, Katie. I'll take your simple pleasures and I'll raise you one Paris.

Sonia, it's been a pleasure meeting you this year. You are a presence of goodness on the internet.

Susan Campisi said...

I'm late and I've already wished you a happy new year, but I just had to say that's a gorgeous photo and a beautiful sentiment. I hope 2012 is fabulous for you, John and Boz.

TheChieftess said...

I hope you had a delightfully wonderful New Year's Eve and Day!!!

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, Susan. I hope the same for you.

Thanks, Chieftess, we did. Same to you!

Jilly said...

Stunning!

Tash said...

What an absolutely splendid, stunning shot to bring in the new year!

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, Tash.
