Ring Out the Old

So, 2012 comes to a close.
Thanks for stopping by this little blog of mine.
I look forward to continuing my story,
my love of flowers, words, and photography.
The past year was kind to me.
I enjoyed the commitment of love between my
daughter and her new husband.
I enjoyed the many accomplishments of my dedicated son.
I enjoyed unconditional Love from my husband.
I marveled at the strength of my Mom.
And the year was sad also.
I lost my Mother In Law.
Friends lost loved ones.
Hurricane sandy destroyed the shore.
Guns killed lots of innocence.
But I close my end of the year post
on a high note.
I am full of gratitude for my life.
I look forward to 2013 full of excitement and possibility.
New knowledge, new ideas, new opportunity.
And my new boots!
Thanks for the Love.
Blessings to all.

They visit every day.
They peek in the front door,
and then in the back.
They are quiet,
and cautious.
They always come together.
3, now 5.
They love cracked corn.
Happy Monday!

Pretty quiet these days in the snow fall world.
Chicago is breaking records
with unmeasurable snowfall.
Ski shop keepers must be a bit antsy,
And skiers, well, they must be disappointed.
We haven't had to plow this year!
Looking at this little Snow Owl,
he's sharing a tiny wink;
rest assured, it will be here!!
How soon?
Happy Snow Dreams.

My Lucky Day

Hello, again!
I've missed my silly blog.
Every once in a while I felt a little heart tug.
It was my Petals and Boots tug.
It was calling me.
Calling me back.
I almost felt like I abandoned something that I love.
It told me that it was time to play with photos and
random thoughts.
And Love.
It's funny. I haven't made any changes,
I just sort of took a break, digested,
and then today, 
I decided to give it a whirl!
Low and behold, my photo uploaded!
I've been reading that 12.12.12 is a lucky day.
And yes, it is for me too!
Thanks for stopping by,
I hope you come back often,
I will continue.....with my little story.
Love and hugs.
