Farewell, 2012!

The last sunset of 2012 at Siesta Key, Florida

Happy New Year!  I don't think that I'm alone in saying good riddance to 2012, it seems that many people had a wealth of challenges last year.  The new year is filled with such promise and hope, a clean slate and a time for quiet after the bustle of the holidays, and I am especially happy that it is now 2013.

And yet, it seems ungrateful to not reflect on those many good things that have happened this past year.....

My mom's complete recovery from a serious illness last spring
The continued health of our family and many birthdays (and anniversaries) celebrated
The births of two precious new souls in our family- our darling first grandchild, Hudson and   precious great-nephew, Michael
Valued friendships... special dinners, riding with friends, fiber retreats in Ohio and at Shakertown Inspired creations, with new emphasis on photography and a special new gallery to be a part of (The Collective)
Some great trips- The Smokies and Siesta Key with family and a felting workship/art retreat to New York for me
A smooth and fruitful year of births and sales on the farm, with many healthy crias and lambs
May 2013 be one of peace, good health and prosperity for you and your family!!!
Pin It Now!

So glad you all were able to take a little time away for some fun in the sun. Nothing like the sound of the ocean to help you relax.
