Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
I can't believe we are starting another new year! Welcome 2016!
I sure hope this will be a good year with less stress.
I am praying for a peaceful and joyful new year. I hope that for you as well.
I always love to start the new year with a clean house. It feels so good to get all of the Christmas decorations put away, it feels so calm.
My husband, Eric, and I had such a fun New Year's eve. We started with a very nice prime rib dinner with our friends, Jerry and Teresa and Tim and Kim.
After dinner we all went to a big party at the local country club.
The band was amazing!
We had so much fun dancing!
What a perfect way to end the old year and start a new!
Eric brought me some champagne.
It's almost midnight!
We are having so much fun!
Count down! 3, 2, 1...
...Happy New Year!!!
Welcoming the new year with a kiss from my best friend! Now that's a great start!
The next morning we slept in a bit and then headed to town.
The town was so quiet.
We met Eric's father, sister and brother-in-law for breakfast and had such a really nice time.
Later I took a little jog with Blondie.
In the afternoon Eric came in and said, "Do you want to take a quad ride with me?" I said, "Yes, of course, that sounds like fun!"
So we both jumped on the quads and took a spin around the property.
It was a beautiful day! The sun was shinning, but it was very cold.
I love the view from this little hill looking down on our property. I thank God for His many blessings of our family and friends and this beautiful piece of heaven on earth that we call Blissful Acres.
I love this man.
Here's a view of the back of our place.
We drove up into the hilly area of our neighbor's property and in the thickness of the trees we discovered a beautiful fine dusting of frost gently laying on all of the vegetation.
It was beautiful.
God's work is amazing!
Welcome 2016! I pray that you will be a very sunny and bright year with blessings of peace and joy. I pray that I grow in the Lord. I pray that my loved ones are happy and at peace and all walking with God.
