how we lost 2008 and gained 2009





so we were all quite happy to see the back end of 2008 ..it hasnt been the favourite year...
i escaped ....

impromptu fleeing from milano ....to find my best friends in the wine-growing hills of north
western Italy

staying in Milano just became "not an option"
.....
at around 7pm it started snowing .....big fat flakes falling down and sticking ..... all my wishes (nearly) came true .... wishing and wishing to get snowed in.... :)
it worked ..more friends arrived and we all had a beautiful night seeing the new year in ...in a good way...

... ie snowball fights ... alot of food and wine....

snow-angels

lots of lovely friends
....

4.30 into bed and a big calvados headache the next day .... what more can you want???... here is the first day of 2009 !!! sun snow ... beauty all around.
