A sweet shot of the adorable sleeping Mira takes the cake in 2012. And those lashes…ugh!

Another HUGE thank you to each and every one of you for making this year so rewarding and enriching for this little niche within the larger community. We’ll be adding another new feature very soon in the New Year, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

~ Happy New Year! ~
