I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve! Mine was spent with family and friends. This year we had a very special surprise. Our New Year’s Eve party came with a proposal. Yup, right there in the middle of the party! He got down on one knee and she said Yes! This is a young man that we have known since he was about 6 years old. What a treat to be there to see him ask his love to marry him! They’re a wonderful couple, made for each other, and we wish Dylan & Nicole many years of happiness!
I can’t welcome in the New Year without taking a look back at all that has happened in the last year.
This year had its sad times too-my mom’s health was failing rapidly and caring for her took my focus from the blog. I have no regrets. I cherish the time I had with her. Thanks for hanging in there as I navigated this difficult loss.
2016 promises to be a much more productive year with lots more in store for you!
My Favorite Posts of 2015
My Mom passed on May 18th, 2015. My life is forever changed. There’s a huge void and I miss her and all the silly, happy and even sad moments we shared over the course of each day during these last 17 years. Finding a new normal after caring for someone for so many years is a lot harder than I thought. I’m so grateful for the time we had together.
This blog was originally started as a way to occupy myself in those down times during Mom’s care. It’s become so much more. I really enjoy sharing my projects and a little bit of my life with you. I love your comments and questions.
I’m so grateful to all of you for taking time out of your busy lives to visit and share your comments. I have lots of plans for this little blog, so stay tuned.
I want to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with love, laughter, and health!
