Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus

 

Seven years ago today, on Sinterklaasdag, I moved to the Netherlands from America.

I have never once second-guessed this decision...or Woman!

Oh, Astrid and yourself might express some thankful thoughts to Sinterklaas - I like this wonderfully processed image very much! Enjoy your day - and Sinterklaas might be your special guest!

Tch, you should watch that big guy. I think he has some spell over your wife. As always I like your conversion and presentation.
Ginnie Hart: It would be true to say I fear no guy, Louis, however big. grin Thanks.
I was thinking of this anniversary the other day when at Ayush's blog. You two are my favorite love story.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, Mary. How very sweet of you. You have just made my day! Thank you.
Une belle façon de retomber en enfance.

A super shot Ginnie, we all realise just how happy you two are together. It doesn't seem 7 years since we followed your move, you and I were both '60 somethings' then weren't we!!

Astrid mentioned this special day for the two of you... congratulations Ginnie... time flies by very fast....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: It's one of our most special days of them all, Peter, for sure. smile Thanks.
Santa Claus is a little fixed but I like the smile of Virginia
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Marie, I am Virginia (from which Ginnie comes) and that's Astrid, my Sinterklaas gift of my life. smile That's why I always use that famous quote, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus."
Adorable... congrats to the making that great decision!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. It took both of us with lots of blood, sweat and tears. But we did it!
I know, life is full of surprises, V, G or B!?

It is certainly full of choices too!
Ginnie Hart: Surprises and choices. Nothing dull about the life I have lived, for sure, LC. How about yours????

Ginnie Hart: You know chatty Astrid, Ayush. smile And yes, definitely a milestone!
Hi Ginnie. Thanks for your explanation. Please to meet you
Ginnie Hart: Astrid always sits next to Santa and Ginnie gets to take the picture. That's the way I like it. smile
