Happy Holidays on vickiarcher.com

What a year it has been and can you tell me, WHERE did it go?


When I think about the year that will soon be relegated to past memory in one way I am surprised with the speed in which it has vanished; in other ways it has felt like forever.

There has been great joy and equally deep sadness to mark 2016 and the year has not been the easiest for many. Our world has seen some great loss, major changes and what the future holds as these unfold are unclear.

What I do know is, I love, love every second I spend here writing and creating content to share with you.

How did I find myself in my 50’s working in the heart of digital publishing? All I can say, (change that), all I can scream is, I am the LUCKIEST woman in the world.

There are days when I think what more is there to say, but those days are so few and so infrequent, they don’t count. My greatest challenge is finding the time to cover all the chat and the beauty I want to share with you. There is never enough time for my follow through.

We have covered many miles together this year and I am grateful for your friendship and loyalty. You continue to inspire me with your generous natures and willingness to travel with me, in every way.

What I really want to say is, yes I am at the helm and it is me writing to you most days, but without your commitment and engagement I wouldn’t have half as much to say.

We are a team and you are my most cherished players.

Adventures are awaiting us next year and I can’t wait to see where they lead us. In the meantime I am taking a break and heading into the sunshine. The caftans are folded, the swimsuits in the bag and the sunglasses ready.

Can you tell I AM excited?

I want to wish you the happiest and most joyous of holiday seasons. Much love, Vicki xv

For spreading inspiration in this world of ours, you are generous.

Peace and most of all, great LOVE to you dear Vicki! Anita

The love for what you do shines through each and every post. I anxiously dig to each waiting to see what you have brought us, it’s like Christmas every day! Enjoy your holiday with your family.

Linda B

I too want to express my deep gratitude for what you have created here on your blog, including the community of excellent readers who make additional interesting comments for me and others to learn from. You inspire us with wise thoughts AND practical ideas (e.g. I recently took your advice on the Charlotte Tilberry eye pencils and they have made a huge difference in my life! And I won’t apologize for thinking that some bit of make up is important!)
So. . . wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas and New Year and a fabulous holiday in the sun! And a whole wonderful 2017 ahead!

Anita Rivera

Happy Christmas morning, Vicki! YES, where did it go? It seemed to come so much faster than ever, and as I woke up this morning, I realized how fast yesterday’s Christmas eve just flew by. I spent the day baking, making final decorations, we ate, it was delicious, but so fleeting! I wish you another day of restful fun and the countdown to a new and hopefully peaceful year.


Thank you Vicki for another inspirational year of your blogs and beautiful photos. It’s a treat to open your blogs and be inspired and motivated to enjoy all the new avenues presented to us.

Wishing you and your family and very blessed and special New Year 2017. Thank you So Much.

Anita Rivera

Late again am I, but let me just say that knowing you and getting to know you better in 2016 has been a blessing, Vicki. May the new year bring you much happiness and health. Where did it all go? We are made of such mysteries. Much love to YOU!
