Well, it is been awhile since I last posted, but I wanted to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

For those who know me, know that 2011 was a difficult one for my family.

We lost my father a week before Christmas, after a long battle with cancer. He died exactly a year from the date that my brother’s wife had surgery for a major brain tumor.

Though we’ve had challenges, I feel very lucky to have such a wonderful, supportive, and loving family.

I am hoping 2012 will bring more happiness, love, and joy into our lives, and just a few less challenges, please! 🙂

So, my plan now is to be back on schedule for regular updates.

Are there any posts you’d like to see from me? Updates on your neighborhood? Let me know!

Here’s to a WONDERFUL 2012!
