~ Reflections ~

Like bubbles in a glass our lives can change just as quickly.

2011 has been a roller coaster ride for us along with many of you. It has brought many changes, coping on a daily basis is challenging to say the least. Through out the year I've thought of putting the blog to rest, to let it sleep and dream of happy times when the blog began. However, if I do that there wouldn't be a journal of my passion for decorating. I've always tried to keep the blog a happy place, not dwelling on everyday issues. Living those most days is not easy, the hard stuff is written in my daily journal. I know the New Year is going to bring even more challenges, my goal is to meet each and every one one of those as graciously as I can.
I want to thank all of you for your support through out the year with your visits and wonderful comments as well as emails. They truly mean the world. The blog has allowed me to make new friends and grow existing friendships over this past year.
So.... for 2012 I'll continue to share my passion for decorating on the blog, I hope you'll come along in the New Year to see what we'll be up to.

May all your dreams come true in 2012
Happy New Year!

Lynne!
Your words and thoughts so eloquently stated , could be from me or any of our blogging family..
we each have our hopes and dreams as well as times of sadness and trials..
It is always a pleasure stopping in for a visit to see what you've been up to.
I too am hoping for a bright and shiny New Year...but still cherishing the old and familiars which will make the leap with me into 2012!!!

Ain't it the truth Lynne. Did you know it's going on 4 yrs that we've "known" each other? Times sure have changed drastically haven't they my friend? Some of us are no longer even here *sighs* I know each day is a gift, but it sure gets increasingly harder to meet lifes challenges with the same "I will prevail" attitude. So for 2012 I hope those trials will be smaller and lighter or even better, hardly there at all for you. You're a lovely person and I'm so happy to have met you back at RMS. Best loving wishes for a HAPPY NEW YEAR! Vanna

I'm glad to hear you will continue sharing your decorating skills with us, you are very talented and we enjoy what you offer!

Blogging is a great escape for those who need a little get-away! I've slowed down a lot with my posting, but still enjoy browsing some of my favorite blogs and posting when I can.

Happy New Year!
