Happy New Year from our family!


This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

May 2013 be healthy and happy for you.

    1. Thank you Diane! I was planning to post new year resolution but my mother insisted I post family photos from our celebration. I know she wanted to see our photos, but she said it will be good for my blog because it is always nice to see who is cooking, traveling, and telling the stories... I couldn't argue that! :)
