Goodbye 2018!

Christmas 2018 is now just a happy memory.
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful holiday season ...I love these days where all is quiet and you can relax and take things slowly.
It was wonderful to have our family all under the one roof and now they have gone back to their life, and apartments.

Just want to say thank you so much for your friendship, support, and encouragement over the past year and following along. Your kindness is truly appreciated.

Write it on your heart that every day, is the best day in the year
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Best wishes for luck in everyone's New Year... but mostly lots of love.
May you have good health, happiness and Joy in 2019.

  18. Thank you for the New Year wishes, Carolyn. I wish you the same. So glad you got to see your family over the holidays. It's wonderful to spend time with family, but I think you're right about the quiet time afterwards....that can also be nice. I love the bears on your blog, and I was thrilled to see pretty YOU! It's a pleasant surprise to see our blog friend's faces once in awhile. I hope the new year is being good to you so far.

    love, ~Sheri
