    Happy New Year!



    It is with a great deal of anticipation and excitement that
     I say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new year.

    The past year has been the most awesome in many years
    and I have been blessed in so many ways!

    It was a year of "firsts" for the Captain and me.  We just
    celebrated our first Christmas together and tonight will be
    the first New Years Eve we welcome the new year
    side by side . . . 

    (FYI . . . last year had us on the phone, hundreds
    of miles apart with the bluetooth as a connection.)

    Long distance relationships do work, although not easy!

    In 2009 I started what I thought would be an exciting new
    career for me . . . 2010 had me walking out in frustration,
    although it was an awesome experience and I absolutely
    loved my job and most of the people I worked with.

    Before the holidays, I discovered an awesome way to make
    new friends online and found a circle of bloggers that spans
    the globe and lifestyles.  Blog hops have so enhanced my
    blogging experience!

    Christmas season was fabulous . . . I enjoyed the company
    of friends and family like never before.

    The UPS guy has been busy delivering packages . . . the result
     of my giveaway wins . . . it feels like Christmas every day.

    After years of prayer, my life has come full circle and most of
    my prayers have been answered.  The rest will be answered
    in their own time!

    Good things come to those who wait . . . they really do!

    Happy New Year everybody :)
