~ Blessed ~

When we look back at the year that was
what jumps out at you

was it the happy times
or do the sad ones seem to take over

with me I think about the ones that 
impacted me the most

like Mom's close call and time spent in the hospital
and Trev losing his job

but I can see how much we are blessed

Mom is still here with us

and Trev has found something else that he enjoys doing
he is happy to get up way to early in the mornings
and drive that big yellow bus
full of littles back and forth to school

see ~ blessed

this is us on New Years Eve
last year
crappy phone picture ~ but we are happy
we were with some of our closest friends
and that is how we started out 2012

this year I found beauty in a dandelion

fell even more in love with this little monkey

spent some time in the place I love the most

watched the sunset at the beach

stopped to smell the roses ~ the sunflowers too!

heard the crunch of the leaves as summer gave way to fall

and made some new memories with these 2
my nieces Sam & Kat

love love love these girls of mine.

So today as I reflect on the year that was
my word of the year will be


that is my life and I need to stop and remind myself
every so often.

Happy New Year 
to all of my friends that I have met through blogging

I also feel blessed to have you all in my life.

Hugs & Love




It is so good to remember ...

Happy 2013 to you too! We love to do a round up of all the year's activities, what we loved the most and the least. Where we went, who we met, what we saw. Of course glass of fizz in hand. And as ou so rightly say, count how blessed we are. Here's to a joyful 2013.
