Traditions Changed ~ Memories Made ~ Thank you given

Christmas 2010
was enjoyed
at our oldest son's.

The boys enjoyed
 hunting together

Mom & Dad
slipped off for a night
and celebrated a
 November anniversary.

(faithful friends please excuse my absence)
I would love to share all the photos
of our night spent in a nearby town,
 Natchitoches, LA.
I'm enjoying being back home
and putting things back in order here.

I will share these photos in larger form soon.
I would like to entice you to visit this beautiful town,
not far from where we were lived prior to moving.

I will share that I'm trying to reflect
~ on 2010 ~
anxiously waiting opportunities
~ for 2011~

It is amazing the journey that I have traveled
since July, through this blogging community.

Those who have become close friends,
laughed with & shared deep concerns
have truly been a blessing
and an encouragement to me.

Did someone make you the customized herb box? That was so cool!!
Happy New Year, Karen! I'm thankful for you and I am excited to see what God has for you this year...and wondering the same for myself! :) It's so good to know He is trustworthy and faithful to complete that which He started in us both!!

So thankful you enjoyed "hiding out" in the woods for the holidays! Obviously, blogging hasn't been my top priority in December therefore I have lots of catching up to do! Happy New Year to you and your family. I'm looking forward to all God has in store for 2011!
