Hello to 2015


 Opening a new year and leaving behind a year that has (for me) had its ups and (heartbreaking) downs of life.  It is a year that I am glad has ended.

So, cheers to the good times of 2014: 
*being with my Daddy for 3 months before he went to be with the Lord;
*to spending time with my Mom and growing closer
*to the time spent with Matthew (our middle son), his wife (Angie), and our grandson Julian before their move back to West Palm; 
*to our visits to San Diego to see Philip (youngest son) & (his wife) Becca; 
*to our visits to  West Palm; 
*to the Family Reunion in PA; 
*to spending time with Joshua (our oldest), (his wife) Sarah, (grandson) Vann, & (brand new grandson) Knox.

 "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to and end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.  "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "Therefore I will hope in Him."   - Lamentations 3:22-24 (ESV)

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog.  This year I am committed to faithfully enjoying life as it comes in 2015; faithfully writing, creating recipes, photographing, & crafting; getting back to life.  I hope to share my 2015 with you.

Here's to a Bright 2015

  1. A year of joy and sorrow is left behind. I understand too well the pain of saying good-bye to your precious Dad. I will always cherish the time I spent with my Papa and my Mom before and after his passing in 2013. I love your blog, my friend. The photos are amazing and so are you.
