Happy New Year, peeps!!!

I know we've done it before with Christmas greetings, but bear with me, my dear readers.
It was a hard year for me and my hubby. His brother passed away and we had to face our financial insecurities head on and be strong for everyone in the family.

On the other hand this was a happy year for us both as well. The decision not to have one big holiday resulted in plenty of small getaways, and we saw and experienced plenty of beautiful places.
A lot of things happened to make us feel more free and relaxed that we've ever been in our entire life together. We might be poor as church mice but we are happy.

During it all I had this blog where I could pour everything I felt and share it with you.

I just wanted to say thank you for being here when I needed you most.

Have a great New Year!!!
 I wish you to find what makes you happy and hold on to it.
Huge hugs and love from both of us,
Karina & Alex

I'll be taking tomorrow off blogging, and hopefully the weather is dry enough to drive into the countryside and do some walking. We both really need to decompress.
See you all on Wednesday.

Happy New Year, K. I'm so happy to have known you better this year. You're so full of contagious positive vibes that anyone would be so glad to be around you. It's too bad we're literally an ocean apart or I'll be knocking on your door every chance I get. :)

Love you to bits, girl and here's to a wonderful, blessed 2013.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
