I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May your family and friends be fortunate in all pursuits that bring peace, harmony, and unity on this good earth in the coming year.
Junipers symbolize my spirit for the tree is evergreen, ever present through the year, bringing warmth at fireside and shade in summer. It is nature at its finest.
