Happy New Year to all our dear readers!

New Year’s post was a very difficult one.

As we lacked inspiration for text, we wanted to have our own picture again, and since the music we planed to rise your spirits more than ever was going to be produced on the 1st of January at mid day, we took our time until now.

After two days of hard work we came up with this New Year card, which we are thrilled to offer you :

new year card

As it was inspired by our great King Michael I of Romania, we would like to explain the elements that decorate this card.

The faded red curtain is decorated with our King’s seal, where M and the little I stands for Michael I, the faded blue curtain the upper right corner is decorated with the seal of our worthy Queen Anne of Romania, two A’s taking almost the form of a cross, and the faded yellow curtain in the middle is decorated with a crown, not the Romanian one, to suggest that the seals on the left and right are royal ones.

A bit lower on the right hand side is the simplified form of the Grand Cross of the Victorian Order, which our King posses since 1937, Knight grade, making him one of the sixty people ever to receive such a distinction starting from 1896.
Of course we couldn’t be more proud of him and grateful for his impeccable service of country for seventy-two years in a row.

The small balls on the left and right are Christian ropes. They are a constant reminder to us that we must respect the teachings of God, and pray more often, so willing for you to do the same, we included them in our design.

In black, blue and gold is a cordon that holds the Romanian Royal Family’s motto, “Nihil side Deo”, Latin for “Nothing without God”, and since it’s also ours, we had to decorate the last part of the card with it, as a conclusion.

The text and our first released banner is enclosed in the shape of a cross, and it represents a simplified version of our coat of arms, where the top half is wishing to inspire you, and bottom half, our name.
All of this inspired by the fact that King Michael I coat of arms will be forever displayed inside the Royal Chapel of the Savoy in London starting from November 2012, making him the first non-British monarch to receive so much respect for his lifetime work.

While the card is for our dear readers, today’s music is dedicated to King Michael I of Romania for being an everyday inspiration and example of, above all, leadership(through kindness) and strong spirit.

Leaving you to admire the best videos of the year, get more inspired than ever, and fill your hearts with great happiness and peace, we are signing off until next week.

With the deepest respect and sympathy,
The artists of Coffeebooksong Studios
