Ring out the old, Ring in the New

Being that I'm a new blogger this year, I just have to say it's been so much fun! I've enjoyed meeting many new friends from around the country, and learning about how to blog with a couple old friends (your not THAT old. lol!). You've all truly inspired me with your wonderful photography, incredible decorating ideas, gorgeous gardens, touching stories, laugh-out-loud personal experiences and views on life. My gosh there are some GREAT writers out there!

Hopefully you too have many wonderful blogging memories from 2008. Here's wishing you many more in 2009.

Happy New Year!

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right

And a fuschia pink sunset photo taken on the same day as the arbor photo

* I took the Arbor photo 3 years ago with an old camera, and though it is not of the greatest quality I still wanted to post it. Unfortunately we didn't decorate our arbor this year. Maybe next Christmas.

Love the arbor! It's as though there should be snow fairies dancing all around it... so pretty. Happy New Year, and YES, may we all get it right this year. I so much appreciate the header help you gave me and look forward to seeing more of your beautiful photography in 2009. Cheers!

I have an arbor almost the same as this but mine is falling apart. I plan to knock it down in the spring and put up a new one.

Beautiful pics. Happy New Year!

I think the arbor picture is beautiful, Sharon! And you have the most knock-out gorgeous sunsets! Happy New Year to you, hubby, girls, and those fabulous furries with whom you share your life! I'm thankful to have you as a friend!

Sharon~I love your photos. Yes, I'm new to blogger and learning my way around. No that isn't a photo of my porch. I wish it was. I'm looking forward to a new year. I want to put out new flowers and shrubs and do some decorating around the house.

Have a wonderful day!

There are a lot of us - new bloggers- out there but few who can take the quality of photos that you do. Thank you for sharing. You inspired me to purchase a new camera and I can't wait for it to get here. Happy New Year!

Beautiful arbor made even prettier by Mother Nature. I am envious of your sunset photos, mine never do the sunsets justice.

Looking forward to reading your blog in 2009.

Happy New Year!

When I opened my blog yesterday I thought of you!!!! LOL
Come take part in the fruitiest party yet this year! My so called 'classiest' post ever was so lovingly highlighted on my blog by my hijacking daughter:) It was concerning a post where our blog friendship first bonded:-)!!! I need to find that girl again as so many truly funny things keep happening around here with my sister in house.
I think I will need to post it again.

I hope you are enjoying your girls during their break from school.

As usual, your photos are stunning. I usually look at them several times...

It's been fun knowing you! Keep blogging and having fun.

Happy New Year,
