HAPPY NEW YEAR (the year in review)

Just stopping in to wish you all a very Happy New Year!!
 I find it so hard to believe that 2010 went so quickly.  It was a year of loss (my dad, my grandmother, hubby's grandmother) It was a year of great joy as we welcomed Ezra our first grandchild. It was a year of stretching as I went on my first mission trip to Central America. It was a year of change as my babies moved out of the house, and it was a year of looking forward to what the Lord was teaching us in our faith this past year. It was a good year and a hard year but one where I learned much about myself and others.
I learned that blogging friends are the best and are always there to encourage and spur you on. The blogging world has richly blessed me this year.
Enough of all of that.
The Wedding I worked on this past week went off with only a few glitches and was absolutely beautiful!!
I will have pictures for you later in the week. It is a chilly 3 degrees here in the Pacific Northwest so I think it's a good day to stay in and take down all of the Christmas stuff. I always feel kind of sad to put it all away until next year. It feels good though too to have everything orderly and in it's place too
Have a wonderful day!!
Oh yes, wanted to let you know there is a new catalog for Willow House with lots of new great products so when you get a chance check it out.
 My wish list is huge :  )
Here are a few of the new items

Apron $24.96


  1. Uh-oh! One of my goals for this new year is to really try and be a bit more frugal, Debbie! I love the cover of the new catalog, so I'm going to go look at it, but I hope I can practice restraint!

  2. Happy 2011 Debbie! I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the wedding. I put my Christmas stuff away yesterday. It felt good to be back to "normal":-). Stay warm...

  3. Can't wait to see the pictures of the wedding!!! I'm so glad to enter 2011 with such wonderful bloggy friends like you!!!

  4. Happy Mew Year, Debbie! Life is always about change...some sad, some good, some we want, some we are forced into. Sounds like a blog entry to to write on Late to the Party! Hope you New Year is filled with lots of wonderful GOOD things! PAM

  5. Glad to hear the wedding went never know what might go haywire on that day! Happy New Year!

  6. Hi Debbie, You really did have some ups and downs last year, didn't you? Yes, life is constantly changing. You are right...we must have faith that the good Lord is there to help us through it all.

    Look forward to the wedding pictures!
    Stay warm! Donna
