New Year Blessings

As I prepared dinner on the final eve of 2011 I had time to reflect on the good of what happened to me in the past year, and the not so good. I’m very grateful for the many opportunities which I’ve had, and  for the ones which will come in the following year. I want to thank each and every one of you for being a follower of my “photo journey” and also to my family for being so supportive of all of my many endeavors!








I made some comfort food straight out of Yankee Magazine’s latest issue,

I’m really trying to embrace winter.

It was just what the doctor ordered!

We quietly rang in the New Year, full from our food fest.

On the first day of the new year we spent outdoors at a local mountain enjoying some “man made'’ SNOW!

We haven’t seen any snow here  in New England since October!, hard to believe!  It was good to be outdoors and enjoying this nice warm weather.

One of the holiday gifts that I really treasured this year came from a friend of mine, she had this made for me by another friend , click the link below to her new blog and become a follower!

She picked out all of the photos (good choice) and when I want to change them out I just clip new ones on. I love that idea!


It now hangs in my mudroom.


Hoping that 2012 brings you much happiness, peace & joy!
