Beautiful picture. She's always my favorite in every church I visit.

Have a Merry Christmas!



I'd just like to take a moment to say thanks to you. Thanks for taking me to Paris, to Spain, to New York, to San Francisco, to Philadelphia. I loved shopping the brocantes, peeking in all the vitrines, and you kept me well informed during the campaign. I look forward to following your adventures in the year to come.

May all your Christmas dreams come true and I send you best wishes for a wonderful new year.


Lovely...I'm longing to the ability to do this.


Amen. When I get frazzled I try and remember the reason for the season. It always brings me back to reality and puts a smile on my face. Merry merry.
(PS we are heading to Riverside after Christmas and I'm taking my wonderful tin R. I'll take photos when I find the perfect spot for it. thank you again my friend.)


What a beautiful photo, and such a lovely reminder. Yes, let Christmas shine!
Wishing you and yours, a very merry Christmas - and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!


Let's celebrate Christmas as you said. Merry Christmas to you Tara!

Gillian daSilva

OH yes, childlike faith is so important.
Christmas means nothing to me without that. We must be silly, and carefree, and in the moment, and joyous. Thankful. Grateful. Happy.
Let all the stress roll off like water off a duck's back. Happy everything Miss Tara!!! You are so deserving of the absolute best Christmas EVAH!!! Yes, Evah!
Love you!!!!!


Simply stunning.

So glad you are back. I've got much to catch up on (as I sneak a visit to Paris between work tasks!)

Thank you for the lovely holiday greeting! Jacquie Lawson is amazing. And have a very merry Christmas and lovely new year. I know my old year was made better by coming to know you, and I look forward to many happy visits in the new year, too!


Merry Christmas, sweetheart. I hope your chef prepares, lots of goodies for you. Wink ; )


lisa & Alfie at The Pickled Hutch

Dear Tara,
Thank you for always providing the perfect written words! And for all your inspiration and wisdom through the last year,
especially during the election months. You kept me informed and make me think more critically. Merci.
Happiest of Holiday Seasons!
Lisa & Alfie

Tara Bradford

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas as well, Amy!

Brenda, I was lucky to get that shot. The gates were locked, so I had to focus between the iron bars. Happy Christmas!

Tara Bradford

Thank you so much. Merry Christmas!

Tara Bradford

Merci, Miss Parker. xoxox

Tara Bradford

Si. Gracias, Yoli. Feliz Navidad! xoxox

Tara Bradford

And to you, dear Judie. xoxox

Tara Bradford

This has long been our habit - to set an empty place at the table, in symbolism for those who have so little. Yes, it's tragic about the homeless problem. Sarkozy has done little to address this issue; Chirac was more sympathetic about the homeless. Hoping for better days in 2009! xoxox

Amy M

Merry Christmas Tara:)


Beautiful photo and sentiment.


That's such a beautiful photo. xoxo

Brenda Kula



Dios mio que virgen tan bella. Gracias Tara.


Amen to your post, Tara. Merry Christmas and God bless to you and yours. xoxoxoxoxo judie

my castle in Spain

i do so wish this "childlike faith" were ours during Christmas and would last all year long...
thank you for this beautiful remembrance and reminder Tara...
yes, let's hold close and keep our eyes open and let's not turn our back (i've just learnt 300 homeless died of the cold in France and it really makes me ponder of the true meaning of Christmas : adding a plate on your Christmas table for the one who has nothing)

Have a merry Christmas Tara..lots of joy, peace and love to you and your loved ones!

ps : merci pour la jolie e.carte !!
