New Year's Eve

Hello!  Can you believe 2011 is coming to an end?  This year went by so fast!!  One year ago today, my sweetie proposed to me, so New Year's Eve will always have a special meaning from here on.  We are getting married in just a couple of weeks and are both very excited.  The past week or so, I've been counting the days and reminding him how close we're getting.  He smiles and pretends to start hyperventilating and asks if anyone has a paper bag he can breathe into.  Well, I've decided to take that little joke of his and turn it into a card.  At the grocery store I got a long brown bag that they usually put bottles of wine into.  I folded it into thirds and it ended up just a little smaller than a standard A2 card.  I left space for me to write him a message - and the best part is he'll have the paper bag handy just in case he needs it!  LOL!!

Have a safe and fun New Year's Eve!!
